Every three to five years, Kearney School District takes time to evaluate our goals and desired outcomes. The result is a visionary plan that serves as a navigation chart for everything we do in KSD. Our schools are defined by high-quality educational experiences and supported by a community of students, parents, faculty and staff. This joint effort extends to our strategic planning. Together, we frame the future for our students!
KSD will be engaging in a strategic planning process this fall. There are three main ways for stakeholders to participate:
- Completing the KSD Strategic Planning Survey
- Participating in a Strategic Planning Focus Group
- Joining the KSD Strategic Planning Committee
All KSD stakeholders will be asked to complete an online survey soon. A handful of focus group sessions will also be held with a small number of people apiece. A select group of approximately 40 KSD staff, parents/guardians and students will be asked to join the Strategic Planning Committee. Its members should be prepared to work together with an open, collaborative and non-judgmental mindset. They should maintain a focus on developing proactive solutions that best serve all students and the entire community.
Submissions will be reviewed by Dr. Miller and her leadership team. Notifications will be sent to those selected for the committee by the close of business on Monday, Sept. 26. We will also follow up with those who are interested in participating in one of the upcoming focus group sessions. Submission of an interest form does not guarantee selection for either the focus groups or the committee.
We are excited to continue this collaboration with our community as we provide robust and comprehensive educational and extracurricular opportunities for all students, every day, no matter what.
