What is a strategic plan?
A strategic plan is a document that determines where an organization is going, charts a course of action, defines what resources are needed, and conveys measures of success. In contrast to long-term planning, which begins with the current status and defines a path to meet estimated future needs, our strategic plan began with the desired results in mind and works backwards to our current status.
Why have a strategic plan?
SAU 24's strategic plan serves a variety of purposes. First, the plan clearly defines a direction through the setting of goals at the SAU as well as at the schools. It ensures that our resources are utilized in the most efficient manner by focusing them on our key priorities. The plan also provides a base from which progress can be measured. Lastly, the plan communicates the work of the schools within the SAU to our parents, constituents, and the public at large.
What is the term of the strategic plan?
The SAU 24 Strategic Plan: A Blue Print for the Future was first published in April of 2012. Its original duration was five years and the plan was reviewed annually, with accomplishments noted in appendices and new goals added to promote a model of continuous growth.
The second phase of our strategic planning process is SAU 24 Strategic Plan Vision 20/20 and Beyond. Like our original plan, Phase II is organized into the same seven overarching categories: curriculum and instruction, assessment and data, professional development, personnel, climate and culture, facilities and operations, and community support and involvement. Its duration is five years and the plan is reviewed annually, with accomplishments noted in appendices and new goals added to promote a model of continuous growth.
