2020-25 strategic plan
After hundreds of conversations with community members, staff, school district partners and our students, our agency has developed a 2020-25 strategic plan. A 28-member strategic plan work group outlined a vision and the six collective commitments for our staff to collaborate on to achieve that vision.
Cultivate anti-racism, multiculturalism, and diverse racial perspectives in program design, continuous improvement, and decision-making;
Create culturally sustaining learning environments that ensure each student is safe, known, and connected;
Establish high expectations for achievement and personal growth for each student;
Utilize culturally sustaining, research-based practices for designing and delivering instruction;
Develop authentic, reciprocal, and inclusive partnerships with our diverse students, families, and community partners;
Seek, organize, and allocate resources towards achieving these commitments.
The plan also defines the strategies and metrics that we believe will help track our progress and accomplish success. In the months and years ahead, we will define specific activities and projects, create a metrics dashboard and communicate about our agency’s strategic plan work.
