In the first strategic planning session, we learned a bit about the participants as a whole through a "getting to know you" activity. We focused on the strengths of the participants and reviewed group norms so we can ensure a productive and respectful dialogue moving forward.
We were informed through a series of presentations by our Learning Services team. From Title I funding to test scores and restorative practices, we dove into qualitative and quantitative data. It was a comprehensive overview of what is currently in place, as requested by the strategic planning facilitators. Though each presentation was only given 45 minutes each, they were able to cover quite a bit of ground in that time.
There was a particular focus on our work in Equity & Inclusion as well as our overall assessment structure. The group was introduced to the Core Thinking Dispositions from Learning Services and quite a bit of time was provided for questions and answers.
