The Ross Valley School District completed a two year strategic planning process in the spring of 2007 with the board adopting the District Strategic Plan. The purpose of the plan is to create a vision, guiding beliefs and mission to guide the District in the years ahead. The Strategic Plan Task Force, composed of more than 60 people included teachers, administrators, staff; board members, students, parent and community members. The Strategic Plan addresses the critical topics of engaged student learning and standards; governance and communications; technology in support of excellence in education; and social / emotional development of our students. Major goals and strategies of the Strategic Plan provide guidance and direction for action plans developed each year. Highest priority strategies for initial implementation were identified by the Strategic Plan Task Force. This plan strongly guides the District’s annual planning, priority-setting and allocation of critical resources – human, physical, facilities and goodwill.
Once adopted, the governance team created with consultation from stakeholders a plan to begin achieving the goals outlined in the Strategic Plan.
