The Francis Howell School District is committed to being a learning community where all students reach their full potential. To accomplish this, FHSD initiated a strategic planning process to shape the District’s work over the next five years. The strategic plan will guide the work of more than two thousand school district employees and countless community partners dedicated to building excellence through a collaborative culture.
The 2011-2016 Strategic Planning Process was a district staff and community-based effort to develop a set of guiding principles and actionable strategies to direct the District’s short and long term plans to achieve success for all students. Updated and prioritized initiatives, performance targets and strategies are a part of the plan to achieve identified goals. The plan is based on information from stakeholder surveys, focus groups and community forums, as well as recommendations from the five strategic planning committees.
A District Strategic Planning Steering Committee formed to make recommendations and to advise the District on the guiding principles, priorities, goals, initiatives, and strategies. The committee was comprised of parents, teachers, district staff, business, civic groups, municipal leaders and provided high-level direction to the District.
Community input and participation was a critical part of the process. Surveys, focus groups and community forums allowed the District to seek input and feedback from the Francis Howell community. The information obtained from the community will assist in the development of the five year plan.
