Strategic Planning Committee

Filed in Archive by on September 29, 2017

The Bethlehem Central School District will begin developing a Strategic Plan for the school district in fall 2017. The long-term plan will examine the district’s core values, mission and vision, and map out goals and strategies that will help guide district decision-making into the next decade. The planning process is just beginning and will likely extend through early 2019.

A Strategic Planning Committee comprised of district stakeholders — including administrators, faculty and staff, students, parents, community members, and Board members — is responsible for establishing the framework for a five-year plan which will provide direction for the district’s administrative team into the next decade. The plan will be designed to be a fluid plan that will allow for continuous improvement and refinement as needed.

Superintendent Jody Monroe described the Strategic Plan process at the August 9, 2017 Board of Education meeting. A series of Strategic Planning Meetings have been scheduled and a Community Forum, to gather input from the larger community, is set for Wednesday, October 11.

Community Forum – October 11, 2017


The Bethlehem Central School District Strategic Planning Committee — comprised of district stakeholders — including administrators, faculty and staff, students, parents, community members, and Board members — invites you to a Community Forum on Wednesday, October 11 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the high school library.
The intent of the forum is to gather input for a strategic plan tentatively titled Design for Excellence 2025. The long-term plan will examine the district’s core values, mission and vision and map out goals and strategies that will help guide district decision-making into the next decade. The planning process is just beginning and will likely extend through early 2019.
