The strategic plan was developed in two phases. During Phase 1 a core team of selected staff members developed the initial draft of the Chapter 4 Plan. This draft copy was presented to the Strategic Planning Committee for recommendations and approval. All proposed changes were reviewed by the core team and entered into the plan. During Phase 2 the core team refined the Chapter 4 Plan. The Professional Education, Teacher Induction, and Educational Technology committees drafted their plans. All four plans were presented to the strategic planning committee for recommendations and approval. After final revisions, Joint Operating Board reviewed and authorized the public display of the plans for final review by stakeholders. The Strategic Planning Committee will meet annually to check progress on the plan.
