Warren Schools Superintendent Tami Crader is inviting the public to learn more about the K-8 school district's strategic plan at a presentation scheduled for 6:30 p.m. this Thursday at Woodland School.
The discussion will be followed by a presentation on the district's new mathematics program, according to information from the school district.
Parents are invited on Thursday, whether or not they have RSVP'd, Crader said on Thursday afternoon.
The strategic plan had been developed over the past full year by a steering committee and strategic teams, the superintendent said. Crader said the board adopted the strategic plan over the summer.
Thursday's presentation to the parents is about the more specific focus areas, according to the superintendent.
In a letter to the community late last spring before the plan was approved, Crader wrote, "As we think about the future and its impact on our students, it becomes critical that we focus our resources on areas of importance to the entire community. From the beginning, the strategic planning process sought input from the various constituents in our community. Through interactive dialogue and surveys of staff members and community members, areas of focus were identified."
She said the area of focus were communication, technology, 21st century learning, school environment, and assets. Teams of volunteers developed recommendations in each area and presented those recommendations to a large steering committee. "The recommendations, designed to connect and clarify existing initiatives and create a pathway for future initiatives, will serve as the goals and strategies for the district," she wrote then.
The school website includes presentations on the areas of focus in the adopted plan.
