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.

The Wayne-Westland Wrap Up- February 2, 2023

Greetings Wayne-Westland Families,

Today is Ground Hog Day which means spring is hopefully just around the corner even though our recent weather has proven that winter is not over yet! Since the colder temperatures will probably be with us for a bit longer, please remember to keep your children bundled up when they go outside. Many of our students walk to school, wait at a bus stop or go out to recess during the school day. It is important for their health and safety that they wear a coat, hat, gloves, and boots to keep them warm. If you need assistance with winter gear for your child, please contact the office staff at your child’s school.
