2018-2023 Strategic Plan


2018-2023 Final Strategic Plan 

Key Statements March 22, 2018

The​ ​Clarinda​ ​Community​ ​School​ ​District​ ​is​ ​pleased​ ​to​ ​announce​ ​its​ ​launch​ ​of​ ​a comprehensive​ ​strategic​ ​planning​ ​initiative.​ Strategic​ ​planning​ ​is​ ​a​ ​process​ ​used​ ​to​ ​set​ ​priorities​ ​and​ ​the​ ​future​ ​direction​ ​of​ ​an organization.​ This​ ​is​ ​an​ ​opportunity​ ​to​ ​hear​ ​from​ ​the​ ​community​ ​about​ ​its​ ​vision​ ​for​ ​the educational​ ​future​ ​of​ ​our​ ​youth,​ ​and​ ​what​ ​the​ ​community’s​ ​current​ ​needs​ ​are.​ ​​ ​​ ​A​ ​diverse Planning​ ​Team,​ ​comprised​ ​of​ ​school​ ​board​ ​members​ ​and​ ​representatives​ ​of​ ​different stakeholder​ ​groups,​ ​will​ ​act​ ​as​ ​a​ ​collaborative​ ​steering​ ​committee​ ​for​ ​this​ ​initiative. 

The​ ​process​ began ​​by​ ​gathering​ ​input​ ​from​ ​community​ ​stakeholders​ ​–​ ​students, parents,​ ​community​ ​members​ ​at​ ​large,​ ​and​ ​school​ ​staff​ ​-​ ​through​ ​a​ ​series​ ​of​ ​focus​ ​groups.​ (see survey results below) ​​ ​This input,​ ​along​ ​with​ ​statistical​ ​data​ ​about​ ​the​ ​schools​ ​and​ ​the​ ​community,​ ​will​ ​be​ ​analyzed​ ​by​ ​the District ​Planning​ ​Team.​ ​​ ​The team​ ​will​ ​consider​ ​those​ ​findings​ ​in​ ​updating​ ​the​ ​mission,​ ​establishing priority​ ​goals,​ ​and​ ​developing​ ​action​ ​plans​ ​for​ ​the​ ​first​ ​year​ ​of​ ​implementation.​ ​The​ ​resulting Strategic​ ​Plan​ ​will​ ​guide​ ​the​ ​District’s​ ​work​ ​for​ ​the​ ​next​ ​five​ ​years,​ ​with​ ​action​ ​plans​ ​being updated​ ​annually.​ ​​ ​This​ ​planning​ ​process​ ​is​ ​an​ ​investment​ ​in​ ​the​ ​future of the school and the community.

Updates​ ​will​ ​be​ ​posted here regularly. Hard​ ​copies​ ​of​ ​background​ ​documents​ ​and​ ​meeting​ ​notes​ ​will​ ​be​ ​available​ ​for​ ​public​ ​review throughout​ ​the​ ​process​ ​at​ ​the​ ​four​ ​school​ ​offices​ ​and​ ​the​ ​Lied​ ​Public​ ​Library.
