“One hour could change a lifetime,” says Superintendent
The Woodburn School District is midway through the process of updating its five-year Strategic Plan, and asking community members for feedback.
A core planning team recently issued a draft of the document after work began a few months ago. The school district is hoping that 100 community members will take an hour of their time on Thursday, February 8, 2018 to review the draft and provide input.
Sessions start on the hour from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the District Office at 1390 Meridian Dr. in Woodburn. Spanish and Russian translators will be available at the 5:00 p.m. session.
Over 20 years ago, the district and Woodburn community developed a Strategic Plan which guides spending and policy decisions for its public schools. The document is updated every five years, and is credited in part to the success of Woodburn students, including its graduation rates and ability to close the achievement gap between different student populations.
“One hour of your time could have a positive impact on the future of our students for years to come,” said Superintendent Chuck Ransom. “We hope you will participate.”
