The Board of Education meets tonight to take the next step in the Strategic Planning process, voting on a resolution directing staff to continue with formalized plans for a three-year schedule of implementation. 

The resolution states the staff would be directed to:

Prioritize Plans, incorporating input from Board and community, create an Implementation Schedule for Year 1, and align to the 2017-2018 budget. This budget will incorporate these first-year initiatives. Both the 2017-2018 budget and the Year 1 Implementation Plan will be adopted by the Board of Education in March 2016.

Create a 3 Year Implementation Schedule, which will be incorporated into annual district goals, along with other priorities, and adopted by the Board of Education as part of the district goal setting process.

This latest vote follows more than a year of planning that resulted in the strategic plan, found HERE, and the action plans, HERE.

The board will meet tonight at 7:30 p.m. in the Columbia High School auditorium. See the full agenda HERE.

The strategic plan's lack of detail or funding sources has drawn some opposition, including an online petition that has received more than 140 signatures so far urging a delay in the vote. It can be found HERE.
