Strategic Plan Goal Areas Highlighted:

Teaching and Learning I 
  • Schools will vary in their approaches to instruction, personnel and operations because highly-qualified leaders will determine the best use of resources to ensure academic achievement and be accountable for those decisions.
  • Self-selected professional learning offerings will be available to teachers so that they can steer their efforts in the areas that will provide the greatest impact in the classroom. 
  • Students will experience more instructional rigor in the classroom and can choose from many more attractive academic offerings.
Efficient Operations II 
  • Financial resources will be allocated to schools equitably, based upon what is needed to ensure successful outcomes for students.
  • Educators will be compensated competitively, with our most effective teachers earning more.
  • Central services will be streamlined and processes will be automated, audited regularly and updated to address needs.
Family and Community III 
  • Families will have a wealth of accurate information available to choose what instructional environment is best for their children.
  • We will define success with clear performance metrics that include student and family voices. Those whom we serve will join us for results-oriented discussions.
  • We will support families in their advocacy efforts and provide one-stop access for many of the services they need.
