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.

Dear Wayne-Westland Families,

With eight weeks left in the school year, students continue to learn, grow, and thrive. Students and staff are also gearing up for the year's culmination with celebrations and cherished traditions. This week has been particularly eventful, with state testing and the educational opportunity presented by the rare Solar Eclipse.

With collaboration from other departments, our Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment Department has spearheaded significant improvements across nearly every academic subject area. We have seen growth in our students. One crucial tool guiding these enhancements is the series of state and national tests that commenced last week. Each assessment measures the knowledge and skills our students learn in school.
