Vision & Goals
In addition to being responsible for the execution and implementation of the District’s Strategic Plan, the Superintendent and Board Chair have worked together to identify the following professional goals for the 2019-20 school year:
- The Superintendent is responsible for overseeing the execution of the District’s Strategic Plan, and all elements within it. Additionally, during the 2019-20 school year, the District will engage stakeholders to determine the next iteration of our Strategic Plan, aligning seamlessly with the focus areas within our Student Success Act identified priorities.
- One of the professional goals for the 2018-19 year was as follows, and was recommended as a multi-year goal:
With the passage of a $247.5M bond in November 2016, many wonderful opportunities are now before us. In order to address increasing enrollment and challenges related to capacity in our schools, we are building a new high school in a new location to open in the fall of 2020. With that opening also comes a multitude of other changes around the District: both middle schools will come together in the existing high school building; Sherwood MS will be the new home of the current Hopkins staff and students; and Laurel Ridge Middle School will become an elementary (yet to be determined are the grade levels it will house). The changes and moves that will occur with the opening of the new high school will require a great deal of advance planning, preparation, processes, and conversations with stakeholders.
While a great deal of this work has been accomplished, projects of this magnitude require the continued leadership of the Superintendent as the District continues its progress in the coming years. Ongoing work includes engaging stakeholder groups, such as staff and parents, culture-building, and fiscal oversight.
Additionally, 2019-20 will include an elementary boundary adjustment process and planning for Dual Language Immersion, among other tasks related to the bond projects.
