Strategic Planning: Historical Background
Employees, parents, administrators and community business leaders began working in September 2014 to establish a framework for the district's mission, vision, beliefs and goals. On Monday, May 18, 2015, the Carroll School Board approved the Draft Strategic Plan on first reading. The plan was officially adopted by Trustees on second reading at their June 1, 2015 Board meeting.
Special thanks to the men and women who volunteered to give of their time and talents to develop the framework for the district's new plan.
In 2014, the Carroll School Board directed Superintendent David J. Faltys to develop a Strategic Plan for the school district. Carroll ISD contracted with Cambridge Strategic Services to facilitate the strategic planning process.
The district created a 39-member Strategic Planning Committee comprised of school employees, parents, business leaders and administrators. This group met for a three-day planning session in late September/early October, 2014. As a result, the group developed a DRAFT Strategic Plan to include an updated district mission, vision, core beliefs, goals and strategic objectives.
On December 2, 2014, representatives from Cambridge Strategic Services met with volunteers serving on 10 action plan subcommittees. This group's work continued on January 8, 2015 when even more community and school volunteers came together to begin work on each of the 10 action plan strategies. These groups researched best practices, brainstormed new ideas and formulated action plans to address each specific strategy area. Their work continued throughout the second semester until the DRAFT Strategic Plan was presented to the Board of Trustees for approval.
CISD staff have been working diligently since June 2015 to carry out the individual elements of the Strategic Plan. This five-year document serves as the foundation for the work of the Administration and campus staff.
