Strategic Planning 2023-24
from Superintendent Dr. Kristine Flesher, Ed.D.
As educational leaders, it is our duty to provide the best possible learning environment for our students, and strategic planning is a fundamental tool to achieve this goal. Character, scholarship, and relationships—the goals developed during the previous strategic planning process—have been critical guides for our work serving Orono students. Now, to review and refresh our roadmap for the future, we are ready to embark on the process once again. It will allow us to evaluate our vision and continue to establish and articulate clear, long-term objectives.
At the heart of our strategic planning efforts is a commitment to improving student outcomes. By setting measurable goals for student achievement, we can direct resources and efforts toward initiatives that make a real impact on the education and well-being of our students. This not only benefits students but ensures the long-term success and reputation of our district.
We have defined five phases in our strategic-planning process. Over the summer and fall, we completed the Pre-planning Phase and are now ready for Phase 2: Stakeholder Input. The strategic-planning process gives us one more opportunity to involve our community in setting the direction for the district. The community includes you: parents and guardians, teachers, staff, community residents and stakeholders. Your input will be invaluable in shaping our priorities and making decisions that reflect the diverse needs and aspirations of our district. We invite you to complete the Strategic Plan Community Survey by December 19, 2023. Thank you for participating!
Please Complete the Community Survey by December 19, 2023
The survey will only take a few minutes but will go a long way in helping us define community needs.
