Development of a New Five-Year Strategic Plan Underway

  • The Woodland D50 Board of Education is currently working with district stakeholders to create a new Strategic Plan for 2023 - 2028. 

    Here is a general outline of the development process:

    • November/December 2022 - The Board of Education invited Woodland Stakeholder to provide feedback through a series of Thought Exchange questions to help identify themes and priority areas. The questions centered around Values & Priorities, Preparing Students for the Future, and the Climate & Culture of the district. Staff, students, and district families were invited to participate and we received more than 1,500 thoughts and ideas.

    • January 2023: The Board of Education will meet to discuss progress from the previous strategic plan, and review data and analysis from district and school administrators, as well as review the feedback from district stakeholders. The members will use this information to identify goal areas to provide direction and parameters for the overall strategic planning process. Meeting Notice.
    • January 2023: The first meeting in January with stakeholders will be a kickoff meeting to conduct an analysis of data collected from stakeholder feedback, as well as an analysis of current realities and progress made from the previous strategic plan.

    • February 2023: In February, the committees will meet to roll up their sleeves and do the heavy lifting of creating the goals and success criteria that will make up the majority of the Strategic Plan. This work will include a progression of how each goal will be tracked throughout the five years of the plan, as well as measuring each goal through a diversity, equity, and inclusion lens.

    • March 2023: Finally, we will gather one last time in March to review a final draft of the plan to see how all of the work from the previous meetings comes together. The main goal of this meeting will be to finalize details of the plan, understand how implementation of the plan will work across all grade levels, and incorporate any additional feedback from stakeholders. The finished product from this meeting will be taken to the Board of Education on March 23, 2023 for consideration.

    Timeline subject to change based on the work of the committees, and the need for any clarification or revisions requested by the Board of Education.
