Strategic Plan Committee

2015-2020 Strategic Plan

The Board of Education initiated a Strategic Planning process involving stakeholders throughout the schools and the community in the 2014-2015 school year. The Board set the Strategic direction and goals for improvement based on stakeholder feedback. The Strategic Plan was initially implemented in the 2015-2016 school year. The Board's strategic planning committee has been dissolved; the meeting minutes and related planning documents are available here.
