Long-range planning involving the entire school community is essential for district coherence and continued advancement. Strategic planning is a process that engages multiple stakeholders in identifying priorities and developing an action plan to accomplish specific goals and outcomes. In this multiple component process, including focus group conversations, surveys, a scan of current data and work group sessions, a shared vision and road map are accomplished to achieve identified outcomes. Led by EASTCONN’s trained facilitators, the development of a coherent plan supports districts in allocating resources and serving as a communication tool for advancement.

Benefits: School leaders will embrace the importance of strategic planning by developing plans that are focused, driven by stakeholder input and that provide consistent monitoring and evaluation. The teachers and leaders who implement the strategic plans will begin the process with confidence that their professional practices reflect community goals and will truly influence student achievement.
