Strategic Initiatives

  • About Us

    The Strategic Initiatives team explores opportunities, anticipates system needs, and presents options that allow the district to adapt to change. We forge partnerships to find innovative, data-informed solutions to drive the district forward in growing capacity and achieving its strategic goals. 

    Our purpose is to develop data-informed and inclusive strategies that dismantle inequitable systems to foster achievement for all students. 

    How We Serve 

    We develop systemwide strategies for post-secondary readiness and success, digital technology, policy and legislation change management, and organizational project management. We also serve the critical purposes of technology levy and grant administration, and coordination of community-based partnerships. 

    In order to develop data-informed and inclusive strategies, we must work closely with students, families, staff, and our richly diverse community to dismantle inequitable systems to foster achievement for all students. This work ensures we operate effectively and efficiently as a district, so our students achieve their highest potential.
