On Thursday, December 3, 2019 our Strategic Planning Team met for the second time to continue their work around setting a long term vision and goals to support student success for the next 3-5 years. Work at this meeting centered around using feedback from community and staff to create a student-centered vision statement, and an overview of 4DX and Wildly Important Goals (WIGS) to create a menu and measures for student outcomes.

The work of the Strategic Planning Team continues to be a collaboration between staff and community. First, I am sharing the team's work with school and district administrators so that they can lend their expertise to the process. I will also continue to share updates and presentation materials on each team meeting right here on our website and welcome any questions or feedback you have.

From those that participated in our Strategic Planning survey at the beginning of the year, to those that are following along in the process now - thank you for your commitment to our district, students and each other!



October 1, 2019 Meeting

Strategic Planning Team

Our Strategic Planning Team had our first meeting. This team is engaging in a strategic planning process that will be used to set a long term vision and goals to support student success for the next 3-5 years. Our current strategic plan expires in 2020. Our team will use input from stakeholders to inform our work.  At this first meeting, we shared our current vision of "All students ready for college, careers, and life" and our three strategic goals around quality teaching and learning, effective operations, and communication and collaboration. We also reviewed input from students, staff, and community members about their hopes for Orting students. We learned together about current educational research and state requirements. We then analyzed our current vision statement to see where that input and information was or was not reflected in it. 

All of the materials from the meeting are posted here. Even if you are not on the planning team, we invite you to follow along our journey!

I want to thank the staff, community, and school board members who attended this meeting and are engaging in this important work.
