Strategic Planning Committee Discussion led by Bryan Klimkiewicz
The committee is looking from a shared vision from everyone including the SGC.
Bryan led us in an activity where we had input into the six goal areas as defined by the district. These goals are:
- Establish a system to ensure all students meet rigorous standards
- Ensure highest quality staff to serve Plainfield students and families
- Address diverse learning through personalization and responsiveness
- Increase parent and community involvement in school improvement
- Ensure safe healthy, effective environments for student success
- Optimize resources to promote student achievement
Through the use of cards placed under each category, The SGC placed most of their ideas under goals 1 and 3. These ideas included increasing foreign language-both time and number taught, more AP classes offered, address all learners, diverse teaching/learning, expand curricula, more tech classes, increase budget for educational resources/staff, increase technology. Bryan is going to compile a full report from these ideas along with reports from the rest of the district. This input will help determine the upcoming strategic plan for the district.
Common Core Brochure was finalized and it is good to distribute. The brochures will be placed at the town hall, the main offices at each of the schools, ECC, the administrative offices at ECC, rec center, and Plainfield Pediatric Center.
Access to SGC email will be officers of SGC.
