Residents interested in helping set the direction of Warren Township schools in coming years will have a chance to join in a strategic plan under development, next month.
The public's participation won't begin until a meeting in late October, under a schedule outlined at Tuesday's Board of Educaiton meeting by Superintendent Tami Crader.
Crader said the process begins with an orientation meeting Sept. 12, followed by an Oct. 8 session with district staffers. Public input sessions would begin in "late October," Dr. Crader said.
She also told board members they will need to determine areas they may be interested in for the process, with some members needed for a steering committee, others needed to observe and provide feedback from the sessions.
Completion of a five-year strategic plan has been on the board's "to-do" list for some time. In August, the board awarded an $18,000 contract to Leadership Links as consultants for the process, including "six formal facilitation sessions, development of a community survey, and unlimited consulting conferences."
The district last prepared a strategic plan in 2003.
