School board adopts strategic plan
by Larry Chowning
The Middlesex County School Board has unanimously approved “Navigation 2020,” a school division-wide strategic plan for the next six years (2013-2019).
The plan calls for a vision that “prepares students for excellence in the local and global economies of tomorrow.” The mission is “in a safe and personalized learning environment, the school system will prepare students to be successful learners, citizens, and leaders . . . through exceptional teaching and learning opportunities characterized by inquiry, innovation and partnerships.”
The goal of the plan is that by 2020 all students will be on a path to graduate on time, and be prepared to become productive citizens.
The strategic plan calls for focusing on teaching and assessing the skills that students will need in order to thrive as learners, citizens and leaders. “All Middlesex County Public School students will be academically proficient, exceeding standards and certification criteria; effective thinkers, collaborators and communicators; independent, responsible citizens and future oriented, with goals and passion,” the report states.
