Eagle Strategic Plan I

This document contains the Oakridge Eagle Strategic Plan I, the first strategic plan developed by Oakridge Public Schools. We’re excited about this plan and the possibilities it provides for our students, parents/guardians and community to improve education at Oakridge. This plan is the culmination of efforts from community leaders, parents, teachers, support staff, administrators, students, members of the board of education session, and a Strategic Planning Team. In all, 178 people provided input for the planning process.Throughout the planning process the community expressed high expectations of Oakridge becoming a high performing school district and having all students graduate from high school prepared for college, workplace success, and lifelong learning. Even though some of the goals are extremely high, they reflect the strong desire that has been expressed to embrace significant change and dramatically improve the school system.There were several clear and consistent themes that emerged from this process.

  1. While much more work needs to be done; Oakridge is headed in the right direction with positive momentum behind the academic growth, instructional improvements and balanced curricular options.
  1. The future of growth and success of Oakridge must be a top community priority that requires support from all stakeholders (students, parents/guardians, taxpayers, businesses, non-profits, foundations, government agencies, community leaders, etc.).
  1. As a district, we must do a better job of positively engaging and aligning internal (students, parents/guardians, staff and the school board) and external (taxpayers, community organizations, businesses, non-profits, government agencies, elected officials) stakeholders around common goals and strategies to significantly improve academic achievement and high school graduation rates.

Our Strategic Planning Team, comprised of a very broad and diverse group of 31 stakeholders, developed the goals. We look forward to continuing to work in partnership with all sectors of our community to implement these goals and suggested strategies.

Sincerely,

Superintendent Tom Livezey and the Oakridge Board of Education
