Periodic Update of the Strategic Plan

A thirty-person committee met back in 2007 to begin the work of developing a new five-year Strategic Plan for Woodbury City Public Schools. That team consisted of a diverse group that included students, parents, community members, teachers, support staff, board members, and school administrators. Their work ultimately resulted in the crafting of district beliefs, a district mission and overall objectives thought to be in the best interest of all our students. From the discussions, five specific strategies and associated action plans were outlined to ensure we achieve our district’s goals.

This year, the district will spend time reviewing and updating our Strategic Plan. This plan guides many of the larger projects that impact the schools in the district. The thirty-person planning committee has already been reconstituted and is scheduled to meet later this month for a two-day session. Then, it is expected that there will be more work to be done by others in the school community to follow-up on any new ideas that are recommended for inclusion into the existing plan.

I welcome any interest that you may have in becoming involved in this "second phase" of development during this periodic update of the plan. If you have a desire to get involved in this process, please contact my secretary, Mrs. Hoffman, at 856-853-0123 (ext. 214) or at We are beginning to compile of list of those interested and will reach out a bit later this fall to begin this phase of the work.
