    Participants will share their perspective on four questions:

    1. What is going well with the Every Student Future Ready strategic plan?
    2. What areas of the plan presents the greatest challenge?
    3. What more should the district be doing to improve student learning for all kids?
    4. What will you as a parent/community member do to impact student learning?

    Those who are unable to attend one of the community feedback sessions can submit feedback online:

    This website will be continuously updated as we challenge our district community to think differently about our work and what we must do to support and inspire our students. 

  • 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.
