Strategic Plan 2019-2025

Planning Timeline

The strategic planning process crystallizes goals and objectives that can be implemented and evaluated. It is a process by which we will look into the future, paint a picture of that future based on our culture and values, and how we will influence the forces that affect us. Our strategic plan will look five years ahead and chart a definite course based on strong indicators of what our school environment will be like in those years.

What is Strategic Planning?

Strategic planning is the process of setting goals, deciding on actions to achieve those goals, and mobilizing the resources needed to take action.

In other words, it is a roadmap of measurable objectives that the district will use as a foundation for decision-making across our school system.
