Duneland Schools to pursue strategic planning

Back To Front Page


Over the next three months, the Duneland School Corporation will develop a strategic plan to be adopted by the Board of School Trustees on June 1, 2020.

A strategic plan establishes a direction for the school district, sharpens focus, develops the right goals and targets, and helps the district to concentrate its efforts. These goals and actions will provide the blueprint for future decisions and a roadmap for the next three to five years.

Development of this plan will require a special team of individuals who will work to:

1. Establish purpose and direction with goals aligned to our vision and mission.

2. Set priorities for resource allocation and decision-making.

3. Ensure operational efficiency.

4. Emphasize research-based strategies to promote student learning.

5. Develop systems that will build capacity for continued growth.

A group of 30-plus people are being invited to make up the Strategic Planning Team comprised of board members, the superintendent, central office administrators, teachers, principals, classified staff, students, parents, and community members. This team will meet on 11 Monday evenings beginning Jan. 27 and will conclude with a presentation to the School Board for adoption on June 1. The work of this team will be facilitated by Howe and Associates Consulting, LLC.

Once goals are established, another group of individuals with experience and knowledge in the goal areas will be encouraged to help construct action plans followed by a leadership summit to be conducted in late spring seeking additional input into the plan.

Those interested in participating on a goal action team and/or the Leadership Summit should contact Melissa Jaeger, DSC executive assistant, by Friday, Feb. 28 at (219)983-3605 or
