Dysart Strategic Plan




 
Dysart Unified School District is seeking community feedback for the revised Strategic Plan and Profile of a Graduate.  Stakeholders throughout the community have been involved in the district’s revision process through community surveys, focus groups, action teams, the 3R Summit, and the Profile of a Graduate Task Force in formulating the proposed strategic plan.

Dysart utilizes the strategic plan revision process every three years to ensure continuity in planning that reflects the learning needs of students and provides a clear roadmap to achieve outcomes.  The strategic plan represents our contract with stakeholders to provide vital educational services and obtain the results the Dysart community identifies as critical to the growth of students and the community.

The district is now asking community members to review this work and provide feedback on the draft plan.   For those with limited internet access, a hotline has been established and community members can call 623.876.7195 to provide feedback.

All feedback will be reviewed and any necessary changes will be made before the plan is submitted to the Governing Board for final approval on March 8, 2017.  

The last day to submit public comments is February 23, 2017.

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