Five-Year Strategic Plan » Home


Strategic Planning

Strategic Planning is a process that empowers stakeholders such as parents, students, district employees, city officials, business partners, and clergy to collaboratively shape the future of their school district. Through this process, the district and community become partners in creating a five-year plan. This shared sense of ownership enables districts to overcome obstacles and discover new possibilities for students. All school districts reach a point where they must reinvigorate their practices and create new systems, or face decline. The strategic planning process galvanizes the community around a common purpose, bringing new life to the district.
