Strategic Plan

Eagle Strategic Plan 2.0

The Oakridge Public Schools Board of Education conducted a strategic planning process in early 2018. Acknowledging the changing local, regional, and global realities faced by graduates, the board wanted to review its vision and mission statements, as well as update district goals.  The final version was approved by the Board in June 2018 with the intent of providing focus and priorities for the next 3-5 years.

The board established 10 Target Goals (see below) intended to drive the district towards its vision. These goals, while broad in nature, provide the district a framework for choosing shorter term goals, objectives, strategies and activities. The board-established goals are necessarily lofty and forward thinking and will require significant input from all district stakeholders to shape the day-to-day decisions and actions that will facilitate movement toward the vision. 

While they will still require additional review, input and discussion, the board also originally identified 31 Key Strategies, aligned to the Target Goals, for initial consideration.  

The District Target Goals are formatted in two ways in this report. The first is a simple grouping by functional area and draws from the groupings used in the last strategic plan, though those groupings have been streamlined. The board was also asked, however, to consider the potential impact of each goal on achieving the vision as well as the goal’s potential impact on district resources. Resources were defined as time, money, culture, and current competencies of staff. When considered and sorted this way, it’s easier to see which goals will require additional planning and implementation time as well as their strategic importance in realizing the vision.

It will be the Board and Superintendent’s role to develop a scorecard aligned to our key pillars to monitor effectiveness annually and support the superintendent in executing the strategic plan through the lens of the Nine Principles of Organizational Excellence(R).

It will be the administration's responsibility, in partnership with employees and other stakeholders, to develop the aligned annual activities to accomplish the goals and advise on strategies.
