 School Board Adopts Planning Framework

October 15, 2008 - The Charles A. Beard School Board voted unanimously last week to approve a strategic planning framework for the school corporation.

At the board’s Oct. 8 special meeting, Superintendent Gary Storie said he wanted the board to give the permission to start a strategic planning process. “I just think it would be a good idea for us to sit down and think about where we want to go,” he said, later adding that he and the administrative staff “would appreciate having well-defined goals set by the board.”

Board member Tom Schaetzle, who had attended an Indiana School Boards Association conference with Storie and two other board members the week before, discussed a planning framework modeled after one used by Peru Community Schools. According to a handout provided to the board, the plan identifies seven major areas to be addressed: student achievement; curriculum and instruction; personnel; community relations; budget and finance; facilities; and technology.

“It’s not a new approach,” Schaetzle said of the planning framework. He said it will give CAB concrete steps to follow, allowing goals to be set and strategies developed to meet them, resulting in a written plan that can be followed.

Schaetzle said the Peru contingency at the ISBA meeting had stressed the importance of getting involvement in the planning from a wide spectrum of people from the school corporation and the community. “It needs to be a holistic approach,” he said.

Board President Kevin Knott said that strategic planning needs to become an ongoing process at CAB. He said he would like to incorporate it into board meetings, with periodic review of progress being made toward meeting goals.
