- More than 1,500 people shared hopes, ideas, and suggestions, with an overarching theme that our community wants to see a paradigm shift from fitting students and families into currently established structures and systems to structuring programs, services, outreach and communications to meet the needs of students and families.
- 27 stakeholders took the community input and used it as a foundation to create a Strategic Direction which sets the vision, mission and direction for the district’s new Strategic Plan.
- 92 individuals representing different stakeholder groups worked on Action Planning teams to focus on 9 different domains of our work. The teams assessed how our district is currently doing in each domain, reviewed best practices across the nation, and developed recommendations for initiatives that would help grow and expand our practices.
On Monday December 19, 2016, the Board of Education will vote on a resolution to adopt the Strategic Direction including the Mission Statement, to accept the work of the Action Planning teams, and to authorize Administration to begin the next phase of the Strategic Planning process – prioritizing the action plans and creating an implementation schedule. This meeting will be broadcast live on SOMATV and can also be watched via livestream.
