http://www.monticello.k12.ia.us/Monticello Community School District,The development of a Strategic Operating Plan (SOP) is an important part to any successful organization. We have come to the end of our existing three-year Strategic Operating Plan and we will be implementing a new five-year Strategic Operating Plan during the 2019-2020 school year. Over the last several months, we have dedicated countless hours identifying our priority areas of focus and developing steps to improve in each of those areas. The Monticello Community School District five-year Strategic Operating Plan provides a roadmap for our school district through 2024. This document was created based on the common themes and needs identified through the collection of data from community members, parents, district leaders, employees, and students. As you read this document, you will find that the Strategic Operating Plan is aligned with the School Board’s Vision, Mission, Core Values, and Broad District Goals.
The Strategic Operating Plan is organized around four specific areas: School Facilities, Communication, Teaching/Learning, and School Environment/School Climate. In each area, specific strategies have been identified along with action steps that will guide implementation of this plan and make the district stronger in each specific area. Our goal will be to implement the action steps according to the timeline set forth in the Strategic Operating Plan. Near the end of our five-year Strategic Operating Plan, we will begin the process of reflecting on the completed plan, selecting new areas of focus, and developing another Strategic Operating Plan.
The Strategic Operating Plan will be closely monitored by the administration and the School Board during each year of implementation. The Strategic Operating Plan is a document that sets priorities that will give our school district a clear direction over the next five years. As we focus on these priority areas it will be very exciting to work with the staff, parents, students, and community to make this plan become a reality. Even more exciting is the impact that the Strategic Operating Plan will have on our students’ education in the Monticello Community School District.
Thank you for your continued support of the Monticello Community School District!
