Dysart Strategic Plan

Photo of student with a telescope in a field.The Dysart Unified School District is excited to kickoff the strategic planning process to ensure the district has a clear vision of how to support student success.  The process is driven by the voices of stakeholders from across the district and the communities served.  Through stakeholder input, the district will define its strategy, or direction, and help guide key decisions in the district.  

Establishing this 3 year roadmap, the Strategic Plan is the formal way the district plots its future course.  The current Strategic Plan was developed during the 2012-13 school year and implemented between 2013 to 2016.  During the 2016-17 school year, under the direction of the Dysart Governing Board and facilitated by District leadership, action teams, representing students, parents, staff and community members, will work together to analyze data and research, review current goals and objectives and then revise the plan to ensure the district goals support a learning environment that prepares each and every child for his/her future.

Recommendations from the action teams will be formally presented to the Governing Board in early 2017.
