Strategic Planning Process
In 2016, the Normandy Schools Collaborative implemented a new process to begin operationalizing system-wide improvements needed to move the district toward its goal of full accreditation.
The process, based on the Kaizen Strategic Planning process, initially focused on the operations side of the district (e.g., Business Office, Communications, Facilities) and served as a process compatible to the academic planning called for as part of the Comprehensive School Improvement Plan (CSIP). Introduced and facilitated by JEGB member and Normandy alumna Pamela Westbrooks-Hodge, the process required departments to perform a SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, threats) analysis, formulate goals, and develop projects for that specific functional area. The findings then serve as the basis for the department to operate and measure against at the end of the school year. The plans are also forwarded to the superintendent who presents them to the JEGB.
Listed at left, you will find the strategic planning presentations for the Collaborative's Operations departments as well as the following academic areas: Culinary Arts, High School Band, Peforming Arts, Entrepreneurship, and Athletics. These academic programs are singled out as they are seen as areas that will have a significant impact on student achievement, and overall environment of the district's flagship school, Normandy High School. (These academic areas are also included as part of the CSIP.)
