Strategic Planning

Strategic Plan update - February 2016
The Board of Education, during a work session on Feb. 11, 2016, heard a report about the District's Strategic Plan. The Board reviewed the Goal Progress Scorecard, which measures progress to the various goal statements within the plan. The updated scorecard included results from 2015.

The Strategic Planning Committee incorporated some formatting changes in the scorecard, but the performance targets remain the same. In this latest scorecard update, Kansas City metro and statewide benchmark peer comparisons were captured for the first time.

The current Strategic Plan was adopted in early 2014. Some goals were revised in November of 2014 after baseline measures where established.

Strategic Plan revisions
The School Board on Nov. 20, 2014, approved goal revisions to the District's Strategic Plan. The plan includes goals, strategies and action steps in eight focus areas.

The Board originally approved the Strategic Plan in February. At that time, it was noted that some of the goal statements would require revision as baseline data was collected related to various goal statements. The revised goal statements were reviewed by the Strategic Plan Executive Committee and discussed at the Nov. 6 work session of the School Board. The goal statements will continue to evolve as new data points are identified.

As part of the continuous improvement process, District leaders have developed a Scorecard to show benchmark targets. You can view the Scorecard below.
