9/14/2018 1:44:00 PM Northland Community Schools seeks community input
Northland Community Schools is in the initial stage of developing a strategic plan. The purpose of developing a strategic plan is to lay out a road map for accomplishing the school district' vision and grow and improve education outcomes for the school district's students. An effective strategic plan is the result of a thoughtful, collaborative process designed to identify school district strengths and concerns and strategies to improve student achievement and learning.
The district is seeking community representatives to participate in the planning by serving on the Strategic Planning Committee. This Committee will clarify the school district's mission, beliefs, and vision, identify strengths and concerns facing the school district, and develop goals and objectives designed to move the school district forward.
The Committee will meet on the following dates and times:
September 27, 2018 at 7:15 p.m.
October 11, 2018 at 6:30 p.m.
October 25, 2018 at 6:30 p.m.
November 8, 2018 at 6:30 p.m.
All Committee meetings will be held in the telepresence room (C-113) at Northland High School.
Please contact the school district at (218) 566-2351 ext. 32076 if you would like to be on the Strategic Planning Committee.
There are two other important opportunities for community members to give input. Community members are encouraged to fill out a perception survey. There is a link on the district website: www.isd118.k12.mn.us to fill out the survey online, and paper copies are available in the school office for those who prefer to take the survey on paper. You can also call (218) 566-2351 if you'd like to have a paper survey mailed to you. Surveys are due on September 28.
The second opportunity to give input is to attend the community members listening session on September 27, 6:30 p.m. at Northland High School. Please plan to attend!
The School Board and administrators of Northland Community Schools look forward to working with community members to plan the future of Northland Community Schools. They believe that when we work together our students and the community will benefit.
