Vision 2020 District Strategic Plan
In January 2017, the Board of Trustees set out to expand and improve opportunities for our students through a collaborative effort with parents, community members, business members and staff. Each representative participated on five different action teams: Student Success, Staffing/Human Resources, Facilities/Growth, Technology and Community Partnerships. Action teams met multiple times drafting specific result statement with suggested action steps for each key area.
Our Vision 2020 Plan represents the voice of our school community in expressing an ambitious vision for Canyon ISD. The plan is surrounded with commitment and determination in fulfilling the opportunities for every student to reach his or her highest aspiration. The Canyon ISD Board of Trustees approved the final Vision 2020 Strategic Plan in June 16, 2017.
