District Begins Strategic Planning

For many years, the West Des Moines Community Schools has set goals that help guide the work we do. The goals are:

  1. Close the gap between present practices and the Shared Vision.
  2. Improve student achievement through effective instructional and assessment practices.

In recent years, however, the district has not had a strategic plan for how we will reach these goals.

That is changing.

Starting November, the School Board, building principals and district administrators will begin a strategic planning process to define where we as a district are headed over the next several years and how we will achieve our goals.

Meetings will be held on Nov. 26, Dec. 3 and Jan. 16 from 5-9 p.m. at the Learning Resource  Center. These meetings are open to the public.
