Oak Grove School District Strategic Plan

Plan For Success - Strategic Plan Banner

Oak Grove School District has long been an educational leader committed to improvement to ensure our students receive the highest quality education. To chart our course for the future, developing an updated strategic plan is among our top priority for spring, 2024.

Our strategic planning process relies heavily on input from our stakeholders, including teachers, staff, administrators, students, parents, and community members. We want all residents, not just families with children in our schools, to join. The process will result in a shared vision for our ideal future and priorities for the next five years.

The planning process will follow a four-phase approach supported by school strategic plan experts HYA (Hazard, Young, Attea Associates). The comprehensive process will take approximately six months.

  1. Organizational Readiness - district planning, preparation, and shared learning.
  2. Inclusive Engagement - Community-wide survey and community forums (in-person on March 11 and virtual on March 12).
  3. Focus on the Future - Using data and feedback to create the strategic plan.
  4. Implement & Evaluate - Create action plans and measures to operationalize the plan.

This website will be a hub of information for the community, tracking our progress through this four-phase process.
