Ahead to 2025: School District starts planning

The Hood River County School District is addressing the challenge of educational growth by kicking off a strategic planning process to shape and guide the school district through year 2025.

The strategic planning process is an opportunity to involve everyone from the community in building a long-range vision for our public schools. The community engagement process will begin with three community sessions:

n May 16 — 6 p.m., Wy’east Middle School

n May 17 — 6 p.m., Hood River Middle School

n May 19 — 1 p.m., Cascade Locks School

The purpose of these community meetings is to collect interest for and to organize the Strategic Planning Committee. This committee will be a broad representation of parents, teachers, administration, board members, students and community, including senior citizens.

In the meantime, community members have a way to get some early feedback going by filling out some online forms including these questions:

n What is your perception of HRCSD’s current strengths? (Examples: instruction, program, facilities, curricular and technology, etc.)

n What is your perception of HRCSD’s current areas that are in need of improvement? (Examples: instruction, program, facilities, curricular and technology, etc.)

n What do you think the successful HRCSD graduate of 2025 will need to know and be able to do?

n What will HRCSD need to offer to produce the successful graduate of 2025? (Examples; instruction, program, facilities, curricular and technology, etc.)
