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:
purpose and direction with goals aligned to our vision and mission.
2. Set priorities
for resource allocation and decision-making.
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
