Campaigns & Initiatives
The Campaigns represent six major themes of the Strategic Plan, and illustrate the collaborative and cross-functional approach required to achieve all three of the District’s Strategic Goals:
High-Quality Instruction, Safe & Supportive Environment, and Effective Communication.
Our Initiatives are bundled underneath each of the Campaigns.
To ensure that students are engaged in school, motivated to attend every day, and prepared for future challenges, it is critical that we set up all stakeholders for success. This includes consistently providing service which is both personalized and high-quality in order to meet individual needs.

Enhance and expand personalized educational pathways, inclusive of college and career pathways, and ensure equitable access to innovative programs.
Initiative 4: Enrollment Opportunity Optimization
