Strategic Planning is a process that is based upon the decisions and actions that shape and guide what the school district is, does, and why it does it.  It requires broad-scale information gathering, explores alternatives for improvement initiatives, and emphasizes the future.  The goal  of strategic planning is to develop a written document that established tangible goals and provides direction to the district.  

In its Operating Principles, the SCSD 1 Board of Trustees has committed to the concept of defined autonomy for the daily operation of the school district.  Click the link below to see how the SCSD 1 Board of Trustees uses their Leadership and Governance policies to guide the district from the creation of the strategic plan to actionable items by district staff.
