Strategic plan

Community’s vision for our schools

Design II, Chapter 2 Vancouver Public Schools logoThe Vancouver Public Schools board of directors adopted Design II, Chapter 2, the second phase of the district’s strategic plan, on June 10, 2014. The plan reflects the community’s vision for Vancouver Public Schools and is intended to guide the district through the year 2020.

Work on Design II, Chapter 2 started in August 2013, when the district began to engage stakeholders in refreshing the plan with updated goals and target objectives. Through a district leadership team workshop, student symposium, community symposium and goal-area team meetings, more than 300 participants were involved in creating the Design II, Chapter 2 plan. In addition, nearly 2,000 people provided feedback through an online survey.

“Broad involvement in the planning process was critical,” said Tom Hagley, Jr., chief of staff and the lead administrator for the development of the plan. “Ultimately, the strategic plan establishes the priorities of our district and influences the climate and culture of our schools. So, it was important to invite our community to participate in creating a plan that represents what we want for our students.”

The first phase of the strategic plan was adopted in 2008 and has guided district efforts to improve student achievement and other outcomes.

The plan includes six goal areas:
