Hudsonville Public Schools Board of Education strategic planning process
Families, Schools

From: http://www.hudsonville.k12.mi.us

Dear Hudsonville Community,

To continue the great tradition and elevate our students’ accomplishments, we need your help to develop,implement, and evaluate a long-range strategic plan for our district. A comprehensive plan should address every area of school from curriculum to instruction, from safety to facilities, and from co-curricular to special services.

To that end, the Board of Education has commissioned a strategic planning process. In order to develop a roadmap for Hudsonville Public Schools, we need your input and feedback. The school staff recognizes that our purpose is to serve the great students and parents of Hudsonville. Everyone who is a part of the community has a vested interest in the success of our schools – students, parents, grandparents, business owners, senior citizens, community residents and staff members.

We will conduct a four phase process to gather data for our 3-year long-range plan:

Phase I: Conduct Focus Groups (Oct. – Nov.)
Randomly selected parents, community members, staff, and students will be asked to participate in focus groups to gather perceptions, values, and aspirations. The results of the focus groups will assist in the development of a comprehensive survey tool.

Phase II: Survey Parents/Community Members (Jan. – March)
Every parent and community member will be asked to fill out a comprehensive survey. The survey will be online, in the January edition of the “Appleseed”, and available at all of the district’s school buildings. The anonymous survey will be tabulated, analyzed, and reported. The findings will help drive the district’s long-range plan.

Phase III: Survey Staff/Select Students (Jan. – March)
Every staff member and selected groups of students will contribute to an online survey. The anonymous survey will be tabulated, analyzed, and reported. The findings will help drive the district’s long-range plan.

Phase IV: Data Drives Vision/Strategic Plan (April – Aug.)
Phase I, II, and III data, growth projections, student achievement data, school improvement plans, and historical information will be formally presented before the Board of Education and administrative team. This data will drive the strategic plan.

The more community input provided through this process will enhance the quality of the plan. We begin this journey knowing a plan will not be developed overnight. The goal will be to have a comprehensive, district-wide strategic plan in place by the beginning of the 2011-2012 school year. With your help, this plan will focus our efforts so that Hudsonville Public Schools will be second to none!

Respectfully,
Nick Ceglarek
Superintendent
