The process allows Glassboro Board of Education and administration to become more strategic managers of our limited resources and helps the district to be proactive rather than reactive when addressing change.
Strategic planning answers three big questions:
First StepsThe development process for the plan took place in 2015 - 2016. In late 2015, school district personnel created a detailed State of the Schools Report. The superintendent presented the report at the December 2015 board of education meeting and at the Strategic Planning Kickoff Meeting on January 11.Planning SessionsThe district's community affairs liaison organized Strategic Planning Meetings. Parents, the community, staff and administrators gathered for these intensive planning sessions on January 11, February 3 and March 2 (2016). NJ School Boards Association representatives guided the process. As the group identified strengths/challenges, a vision of the future and finally, goals and objectives, the plan's framework began to take place.Action PlansBetween March and May, the school district took the framework a step further and created action plans to meet strategic planning goals and objectives. The district presented the goals, objectives and action plans at the July 2016 Board of Education Meeting, and the board of education approved them. The district will update the community annually on the progress of the goals. Please take a moment to look over the summary document and action documents.
