One of the more difficult challenges that our large district presents is how to effectively plan to meet the learning needs of our students at our forty-three diverse schools. While certain commonalities among our schools exist, it is clear that what works in Soldotna may not work in Razdolna. With this in mind, in January 2012 we set out to create a long term strategic plan that will guide our improvement efforts for the next five years. Using input from employees and also community members, the district’s principals, administrators, and school board drafted new mission and vision statements and then created this plan that seeks public comment.
I’m asking for your response again at this stage in the process—KPBSD seeks input from employees, families, community members, and students regarding the new vision, mission, guiding principles, and three focus areas for the school district.
The three focus areas, vision, and guiding principles will frame the school district goals, and drive the long-term strategic priorities for KPBSD at district-wide and local school site levels. The broad focus areas are:
- Academic Success
- Organizational Excellence
- Community and Family Engagement
Survey open until August 6th.
