Olympia School District's strategic plan

The Olympia School District's draft strategic plan is now available as a .pdf. It's mostly general in its outlook. Some of the positives--parental and community support, quality staff, diverse alternative programs, great students, a safe environment--are well understood and appreciated both by OSD employees and the community at large. Equally auspicious, though, is the first listed weakness:
  • Divide between parents (public) and educators / under-communication from the system to parents & community
Some steps are being taken to improve the communication gap--Skyward grading access for parents, board meeting podcasts, and more frequently updated school and district websites, much at the behest of our Director of Communications, Peter Rex. No surprise, then, that interested citizens can email him about the Strategic Plan. It's still a work in progress.
