The Board is committed to the continuous improvement of the School District of Omro. Recently, we adopted a strategic plan to accompany our vision statements that will sustain our educational focus and move our District forward. We needed a strategic plan that could not only make things happen but that could shape how things happen within the District.
During our discussions, all of us knew that strategic planning had common elements and that they were developed to essentially carry out a purpose, direction, or idea in order to succeed. We also knew that most strategic plans simply don't keep pace with ongoing efforts and some don't even get looked at since once they are developed. It became our intention to develop a working strategic plan.
Over the course of several months, a strategic plan with some very unique features was designed. We needed it to be realistic, adaptable, scalable, and placed directly in the path of our decision makers. Specifically, this meant the strategic plan had to include: clear realistic goals, defined action steps, generated reports of on-going efforts, and a monthly review by the Board.
