Strategic Planning Process

Strategic Plan: Aspirations/Goals One Sheet

strategic plan is the vehicle that allows an organization to look at its future. Through visioning, developing a mission, examining core values, and setting achievable goals, the district moves toward attainment of school improvement.

Strategic planning is an ongoing integrated process in high performing organizations. Over the course of the next several months, Springboro Schools will be implementing a strategic plan startup phase and the development/deployment of a strategic planning process.

The ongoing process is designed to be sustainable with Springboro Schools' students, parents, staff, and community. CF Educational Solutions (Dr. Robert Sommers and Jim Lay) has been hired by the district, as a consultant, to provide critical support for the startup phase, as well as the development of the strategic planning process. CF Educational Solutions will provide feedback and monitoring support in the first year of the strategic planning process deployment.

Strategic Advocacy Group

A long-term advocacy and support group was identified and assembled. This advocacy group will serve as the district's internal/external group developed to commit to long term strategic efforts for the organization, with regards to Springboro Schools' strategic plan. 
How Was This Advocacy Group Formed?
Key strategic student, stakeholder, and staff segments were determined, then confirmed by Springboro Schools' Board of Education and Senior Leadership. These confirmed representatives (students, stakeholders, and staff) were invited to join the advocacy group and engage in a series of listening, learning, strategy, and approval sessions. The target size of this group was between 15-20 individuals.
