JPS Strategic Planning Process Information

As part of Superintendent Tim Mains’ Entry Plan, he has laid the groundwork/framework for a comprehensive strategic planning process to improve student achievement and ensure District sustainability to be developed in the 2013-14 school year and implemented in the 2014-15 school year.

As part of the strategic planning process, the JPS Board of Education approved a new mission, vision and goals for the district (click here for JPS mission, vision and core beliefs).

Six strategic planning committees were established:  Rigorous Academics, Closing Gaps in Student Achievement, Social/Emotional Development, Accountability/Metrics, Parent/Community Engagement, Technology, Extracurricular and Communications/PR. The committees consist of: parents, community members, JPS staff, non-profits and foundations and local businesses and colleges (please click here for a list of the strategic planning committees and their members).

The six committees will meet a minimum of once a month until June 2014. Each committee has Central Questions to answer regarding their area (please click here for the Central Questions for each committee) and will identify strategies and recommend action steps to the Board of Education at their July 2014 meeting.
