It may be summer, but there is still a lot of activity going on in the Kirtland Local Schools.
Our Strategic Planning Committee is finalizing action planning steps that came out of an all-day retreat last spring. The group worked on developing beliefs, and mission and vision statements for the district after evaluating district needs. Small groups then refined action plans and goals. This cascading system of strategic goals and action plans engages everyone from the classroom to the board room in accomplishing the district’s vision and mission in alignment with core values.
The level of discussion and engagement of the
participants and the feedback from the community
continues to help guide the future of the school district.
Student representatives were an integral part of the
process, providing valuable insight, along with parents
and community members.
The strategic plan will be a dynamic, active document
that guides decision-making at the school and district
levels. The goals of the strategic plan are the focus and
driving force of the district with all other plans, resources,
programs, and initiatives affecting the planning
supporting these goals.
A final strategic plan is expected to be presented to the
Board of Education in July.
