The strategic planning process will be guided by the Wisconsin Association of School Boards (WASB). This is the same organization that successfully guided our district through the school perceptions survey (a survey of building climate and staff morale) as well as the superintendent hiring process.
This meeting is the communities first opportunity to hear and learn about the process the WGSD school board will likely adopt. Below are two of the key statements from the proposals introduction. You can also view the full proposal.
“The Waterford Graded School District has requested a proposal for Stakeholder Strategic Planning. A district’s strategic plan is the foundation of improved student and institution performance. It is the foundational tool that school leaders utilize to connect with community, staff, parents and students. It is not only a reflection of the community values but an instrument through which leaders can turn the mission and vision into action.”l
“Community involvement is a key component to the strategic planning process. Community members are involved in the planning steering committee and the community at-large is given an opportunity for input through a survey process. The community or stakeholders play an important role in the development of the strategic plan and the planning process. The end result is a document to guide the improvement process for the next three years.”
