The 2019 annual report to the community takes a closer look at the first year of our five-year strategic plan. In June of 2018, the Board of Education adopted a strategic plan with the involvement and engagement of staff, students, parents, community members and business leaders.
The five strategic plan goals identify 13 priorities for the district to assess and analyze. Beginning this fall, the district action plan committees will study and define next steps.
Our district and its schools are the centers of the community. As such, the district believes that community engagement and collaboration between our staff, parents and residents are pivotal to the success of our students.
