The School Board, school administrators, and the community began the work of developing a new strategic plan that will proactively guide the school division’s academics and operations for five years beginning with the school year 2022-23. This new framework will update and replace the school division’s current five-year strategic plan.
Strategic planning is a proactive process of identifying the critical issues that a school system must address to efficiently continue providing value. Good strategic planning is dynamic in nature, moving a school division from being reactionary to being proactive by linking the vision, mission, goals, key performance measures, strategies and action plans to the budget. At the heart of strategic planning are four key questions: Where are we? Where do we want to be? How will we get there? How will we measure our progress? Strategic planning makes a school system less reliant on any one individual and better able to transcend changes.
