During the 2012-2013 school year our district worked diligently to create a strategic plan. The reason for that work was to create a clear vision for our district and track our progress to ensure organizational improvement. In January, the school board engaged in a board retreat to begin planning for the 2014-2015 school year. The board was also updated on the progress of the approved strategic plan.
Our strategic plan consists of five vision cards:
Vision Card A: Raise Achievement; Close the Gap and Prepare Students for Their Futures
Vision Card B: Align Core Process of Learning and Best Practices in Teaching Through Collaborative Teaming
Vision Card C: Develop Partnerships to Engage Faculty, Family and Community
Vision Card D: Effectively Manage Human, Financial and Physical Resources
Vision Card E: Establish Trust Through Transparency
Within each vision card we have five levels of attainment:
Level 1 – Intervention
Level 2 – High Concern
Level 3 – Baseline
Level 4 – Progressing
Level 5 – Vision
Vision Card A – 60% of our goals were at baseline or above.
Vision Card B – 67% of our goals were at baseline or above.
Vision Card C – 100% of our goals were at baseline or above.
Vision Card D – 100% of our goals were at baseline or above.
Vision Card E – 67% of our goals were at baseline or above.
We are pleased with the progress in meeting our district’s vision. The board made some adjustments to language in the strategic plan and also raised the bar in certain areas. The Janesville-Waldorf-Pemberton school board, staff, students, parents and communities are committed to continuous improvement. We will continue to adjust our practice until our vision is met within each Vision Card. Should you be interested in reviewing our strategic plan, please feel free to contact me directly.
“Our district will empower learning, energize achievement and enhance community. Excellence without excuse!”
