Strategic Plan


The Board is in the process of updating their Strategic Plan.  We are seeking feedback from a broad range of stakeholders through our community forums and meetings to ensure the plan is responsive to the needs of our state and our communities as we seek to provide a high quality education system that prepares all students for college, career, and life.  The strategic plan will establish goals and outline strategies that will move us toward this vision through the development of state policy for K-12 education, effective oversight of public schools, and advocating for student success.

The Board welcomes feedback from all stakeholders.  If you are unable to attend a meeting or forum you are welcome to provide comments to the board in writing or complete our strategic plan feedback survey (avaliable beginning in early May.)

  3. Ensure that every student has the opportunity to meet career and college ready standards.

  4. Provide effective oversight of the K-12 system.
