Here’s a truth well communicated by visual Janis Ozolins. (@OzolinsJanis)
I wanted to share this with you today because it also reflects the approach we’re using in the implementation of our new Strategic Plan.
Ozolins’ visual is simple and clear.
It totally supports the sentiment expressed by the words.
I’m hopeful we can do something similar with our district’s Strategic Plan.
That is, feature four images or icons that effectively connect with condensed versions of our Strategic Plan’s four goals.
How do these look to you?
Goal Area 1
Culture of Excellence in Education
- safe, supportive, and collaborative settings
- effective teaching in every classroom, modeled in best practices
- consistent & viable curriculum in all classes and grade levels
- equitable and inclusive environments where EVERY student is respected, supported, and encouraged to learn and grow
Goal Area 2
Sustainability for Today and the Future
- strategies to attract, recruit, and retain a highly qualified and effective staff
- fiscall responsibility and stewardship which support effective and innovative instructional programs and facilities that are safe, healthy, and functional
Goal Area 3
Facilities and Technology for the 21st Century
- fiscally responsible technology planning that supports instructional needs
- high quality up-to-date facilities
- facilities and technology which suport global competencies and college & career readiness
Goal Area 4
Engaged Community Stakeholders
- stronger partnerships that grow and benefit students and community partners alike
- strategies for elevating student voice and well-being
- consistently showcase district strengths to community and beyond
Thanks for looking these over.
Now, I’ll leave you with a question sparked by this quick-thinking boy in this cartoon –
Are good strategic planners made or born?
