Help Shape School Plan

November 9, 2012 at 8:50 am Leave a comment

The South Bend Community School Corporation is developing a strategic plan and wants your input. Working with Synergetic Leadership Group, SBCSC has a five-phase approach to support collaboration between and among the Board, Superintendent and community.

“In effect, the corporation’s strategic plan, founded on community-based tenets, provides a decision making framework for a system focused on doing the right thing, the right way for the right results. It also becomes the tool for the ongoing monitoring, review and revision required of a continuously improving organization.”

SBCSC is seeking input from all stakeholders (community members, businesses, non-profits, etc.) with forums scheduled for specific areas. You can find the full schedule at their website: http://www.sbcsc.k12.in.us/strategic

There are two community forums being held on Monday (11/12) at Adams High School and Tuesday (11/13) at Washington High School from 7pm to 8:30pm. If you are not able to attend either of these sessions, consider taking a few minutes to complete the survey. This deadline is November 16th, so don’t wait. You can reach the survey at the above link.

Interested in seeing the progress so far? Here’s the draft versions of the vision and mission statements:

DRAFT VISION STATEMENT
All children will experience quality learning every day, receiving the respect, encouragement and support they need to be academically and personally prepared for post-secondary success, and equipped to thrive in, and shape, a changing world.

DRAFT MISSION STATEMENT
In partnership with students, families and community, we educate every student to successfully navigate the challenges of today and seize the opportunities of tomorrow through the continuous pursuit of excellence.

South Bend residents, now is the time to collaborate with SBCSC. Take advantage of this opportunity to be involved in this process to move our students forward. If you attend one of the meetings, please share your thoughts here.
