Dr. Sean Alford, assistant superintendent for instruction, presented the Dorchester District Two Board of Trustees with a Power Point presentation of the district’s 2013-2018 Strategic Plan at May 15’s board meeting.
The five-year plan includes three goals, 16 strategies a mission that Dorchester Two will lead the way “every student, every day through relationships, rigor and relevance” and a vision that the district “desires to be recognized as a ‘World Class’ school district expecting each student to achieve at his/her optimum level in all areas, and providing…an environment that permits them to do their personal best.”
The three goals are:
Goal 1: Curriculum, instruction, assessment – …develop, implement and monitor an innovative curriculum that promotes personalized learning and continuous academic improvement while supporting the 21st Century learner.Goal 2: District management – …provide human, financial and physical resources and services necessary to support…vision of achievement for all students to succeed in a competitive global economy.Goal 3: Organizational climate, culture and communications – …maintain safe and nurturing environment…conducive to learning and working, facilitating optimal student performance and promoting communication while engaging…diverse community of learners.These goals and their supportive strategies are the result of district-wide collaboration, said Alford, including survey data from more than 7,000 parents, teachers and students across all grade levels, strategy and action plan development by 16 strategy teams which included teachers, administrators, parents and community/business representatives and feedback from the AdvancedED External Review Committee.
Ultimately, the plan focuses on graduating students who are well prepared for either college or career.
