2018-2024 Comprehensive Plan Development

The Shenandoah County Public Schools is preparing its next comprehensive strategic plan that will provide a long-range roadmap for the Division for the next six years (2018-24). Though required by Virginia Code, strategic planning is highly recognized in education as an effective way to communicate the priorities of a school division to students, parents, staff, and the community.

Among key aspects of the strategic planning process is that it is based on data analysis and how the data will be used for continuous improvement. The current strategic plan has been in place for the past six years and comes to conclusion at the end of the 2017-18 school year. The goals of the current plan are focused on student opportunity and achievement, effective communication, staff excellence, and system efficiencies.

Schools Superintendent Dr. Mark Johnston said that “having a long-range plan provides direction and holds the Division accountable to our students and community. It also helps to communicate our future and what we hold valuable and important for ensuring a bright future.” School Board Chairman, Karen Whetzel, stated that “strategic planning is a transparent and engaging way to involve our public in setting a path forward for the Division. It also helps us as Board members to function effectively as a governing body and be accountable to the students, staff, and citizens of Shenandoah County.”

Currently, the Division is seeking input on the development of the 2018-24 Strategic Plan through focus groups with staff, citizens, business partners, business leaders, and representatives from higher education. Led by Hanover Research Associates, the Division is seeking input on 1) the Division’s culture, and 2) the Division’s career preparation of students. The Division culture focus group is targeted to parents of K-12 students, classroom teachers, and support staff. The career preparation focus group is targeted to middle and high school teachers, representatives from higher education, healthcare, and business.
