The current Strategic Plan was developed during the 2022-2023 school year.  This shared vision of the future emerged as a result of intensive collaboration among mixed stakeholders.  The process has allowed stakeholders to explore the many ways in which we will continue to grow and develop over the next three years.  The process has also established a tone for collaborative decision making and community engagement.  It is intended that this sense of teamwork will prevail as the district moves forward in implementing the Strategic Plan.  

The Process

In the fall of 2022, the District began the Strategic Planning process with the intention of engaging staff, students, parents, and community in meaningful dialogue about the District's future.  The first meeting was held on October 20, 2022 with an emphasis on Community Visioning.  Bright Spots were identified and common themes emerged, to be included later in the goal-setting phase.  The second meeting was held on November 3, 2022 and focused on Staff Visioning.  At this meeting, relevant themes were refined and the next steps of further engaging the students, staff, and community were clarified.  A Leadership Committee was formed and invited to the third meeting, which was held on January 3, 2023, and resulted in the drafting of specific goal statements.  The Leadership Committee met on February 28, 2023 to identify specific objectives and activities for each goal statement.   A draft of the new Strategic Plan was presented to the Board of Education for review on May 23, 2023.  It was then shared with the staff and community for feedback.   The finalized Strategic Plan was approved at the June 20, 2023, 2023 Board of Education meeting.

Acknowledgements - Thank you to all who gave their time, energy, and attention to the Strategic Planning process.  Your input was invaluable as we continue our collaborative approach to envisioning our future and working to achieve our goals.
