The Sanborn Regional School District recently rolled out the strategic plan that has been developed for the next five years. Copies of the plan were mailed to the residents of the district during the last week.
The plan was developed by a group of about 40 community members, staff, students and board members. A steering committee developed the following focus areas to fill out the plan: Curriculum, Technology, Culture, Physical Assets, Staffing, Communications and Funding. Within each of these focus area, subcommittees developed a list of action plans to move us toward our goal of becoming a top 10% school district.
As you read the Strategic Plan, you will notice some items that, on the surface seem to be definitive, are points that will require additional research and conversations within and between Kingston and Newton. Subcommittees will be formed as we move forward to address some of these areas, particularly in the area of Physical Assets. I encourage members of both communities to participate in the discussion help to determine the future of our district.
I would like to publicly thank the many members of the Sanborn community who participated in the development of the Strategic Plan and I look forward to working with the communities to implement the Plan.
If you have any questions regarding the strategic plan, please contact my office at 642-3688. We will also be scheduling a public forum in the near future to discuss the plan and take input from the community.
