Duneland School Corporation to Develop STRATEGIC PLAN

Duneland School Corporation Strategic Plan Update

The Duneland School Corporation is currently engaged in the development of a 3-5 year Strategic Plan.  Over the past few weeks, 40 team members have been working hard to identify our Core Values and construct Vision and Mission statements.  The team is also in the process of comparing student performance data, and analyzing personnel and resource allocation with comparable school districts.  In addition, the team is reviewing feedback gleaned from 526 stakeholder interviews conducted by an AdvancED District Accreditation On-Site Review Team, Consortium for School Networking (CoSN), and Howe & Associates Consulting.  Additional information will be gathered through surveys administered to all constituent groups in March with goals to be determined based on the collected information.  The implementation of the DSC Strategic Plan is a shared commitment for all that work for the Duneland Schools and live in the Duneland community.
