2022-2023 Superintendent's Goals


#1:  Learning & Leading Plan
By June 30, 2023, Superintendent will present an updated Learning & Leading Plan to the Board.  The plan shall specifically delineate the manner in which the Superintendent will engage multiple stakeholders and key constituents in intentional, purposeful, and strategic leadership to move the District forward in accordance with the shared vision of the Board and the Superintendent.

#2:  Organizational Structure
By June 30, 2024, the Superintendent will redesign the Central Office so it functions as a high-performing service organization to provide high-quality Instructional, Human Resources, Finance and other services that support learning-focused schools.

#3:  Student Growth and Achievement
On or before June 30, 2024, the Superintendent shall present a written plan using multiple data sources to assess student success and growth as appropriate, specific to the needs within the District and as determined annually in collaboration with the Board of School Directors.  Annual or other District performance objectives will be articulated and achieved under the direction of the Superintendent. It is understood that the Superintendent will develop and adjust a plan as part of the annual budget planning processes to bolster the District’s curriculum delivery in order to assure equitable implementation throughout the entire District.  The plan will include an intensive professional learning for district leadership and a training and implementation plan for all staff. The implementation of data informed decision making and instructional change are intensive processes that cannot be reasonably implemented within the first few years of a Superintendent’s employment.  During the summer of 2023 school year, work will actively commence on data inquiry so that the June, 30, 2024 date can be met.

#4:  District Operations and Financial Management
The Superintendent will initiate recommendations to effectively ensure the completion of all activities associated with the annual budget; overseeing the distribution of resources in support of the District’s priorities; directing overall operational activities within the District; and/or managing any contractors or firms providing operational activities on behalf of the District. 
#5:  Achieving Organizational Leadership
The Superintendent shall work collaboratively with the Board to build productive relationships, promote effective district governance, and establish policies that support the mission and vision of the District.

#6:  Human Resources Management
The Superintendent will review and recommend changes in the Human Resources and Benefits Departments of the District to incorporate best practices for coordinating staffing, recruitment, retention, and other Human Resources functions; and managing any contractors with respect to the Human Resources component in the District.

#7:  Communication and Community Relations
The Superintendent will communicate and effectively engage the staff, the Board of School Directors, and members of the community clearly articulating District goals and priorities; addressing local and broader issues affecting the District; and building support for District initiatives, programs, and short/long-range plans.
