The WPS Strategic Plan, Every Student Future Ready - Empowered to Dream, Believe and Achieve, is the district's guiding focus to ensure all students are college and career ready by receiving an innovative and rigorous education. The WPS Strategic Plan, comprised of our Mission, Vision and Shared Beliefs, our Long-Term Goals and Strategic Themes, will guide the work of the Wichita Public Schools through 2025.
How did we get here?
We listened. We learned. Thousands of district and community stakeholders participated in more than 20 listening sessions held during Superintendent Dr. Alicia Thompson's first year. The Board of Education and district leadership used the feedback received to shape the elements of the strategic plan presented on this site.
Over the course of Year 1, district leaders focused on creating success measures and began implementing the Strategic Plan.
