Strategic Plan

Strategic planning determines what an organization wants to be at a point in the future and how it will get there. An effective strategic planning process results in stakeholders focusing on priorities that will meet the mission of a quality educational program for all students. 

This strategic plan is a living document. It will serve as a ‘road map’ to future planning, resource allocation, staff development, and decision-making over the next several years.
