Meridian School District

Please Join Our Strategic Plan Revision Advisory Group

Good Evening Meridian Students and Families,


I am reaching out tonight to ask for help in revising Meridian School District’s strategic plan. When I arrived at Meridian in the Fall of 2018 the strategic plan had been completed in December of 2017. It has four main goals. As part of my entry plan, I discovered four prominent themes. Last winter I developed a plan to include more voices, develop new metrics, and combine the best of the eight areas to make a new strategic plan. Shortly after, the pandemic interrupted that work.


2017 Strategic Plan Goals

  • Student Achievement
  • Close Achievement & Opportunity Gaps
  • Quality Staff & Professional Development
  • Community Relations


Entry Plan Themes

  • Communications
  • Early Childhood Education
  • Social / Emotional Learning
  • Technology Learning Initiative


We are now ready to move forward and invite your participation in this work. I first shared this information in my May 5th message. We are planning one meeting a month from May to December to listen to ideas and perspectives – and to help us develop a new strategic plan. Please click this link to see the MSD Strategic Plan Revision & Development Advisory Group web page. There is a brief application on that page.


Please follow the directions on that application prior to 5:00 pm on Friday, May 21st.


If you have any questions, please let me know.


Thank you,


James
