Agenda Item Summary: The Equity for All 2025 Strategic Plan outlines seven key performance indicators and additional measures aligned to five goal areas that will help the division achieve the vision of empowering all students to thrive in a diverse and ever-changing world. The next step in implementing the plan is to outline the process and system of measurement that will be used to gauge progress over the next five years. In building the roadmap for strategic plan implementation, the seven key performance indicators are defined with formative, or leading, measures of progress identified in addition to the summative or end-of-year outcome measures. These leading measures inform the division to adjust actions to effect change before it is too late to influence end-of-year outcomes. The process for keeping the Board apprised of progress is outlined with considerations given to the current year impact of COVID and next steps.
Background: The strategic plan provides a road map to guide the division toward achieving Equity for All by 2025. The strategic plan and related indicators inform the budget priorities for the division that, in turn, inform the focus areas for the school year. Identifying the focus areas is tied to the Superintendent’s evaluation. School and Department Improvement Plans identify purposeful actions designed to achieve targeted outcomes for students within the academic year. All of these components together demonstrate systemic alignment allowing the division to work together toward a shared understanding of the desired outcomes for students.
Recommendation: The Superintendent recommends that the School Board review the attachments for an understanding of the proposed measurement areas and reporting cycle for Board updates.
