Strategic Plan

This year we are working on the development of a five-year strategic plan for the Monroe School District. The first part of the 2023-24 school year has been focused on looking at data and collecting input from staff, students, families, and community members to help inform the development of the draft strategic plan. By mid-February, we plan to share the draft strategic plan for feedback, and make adjustments as necessary before going to our School Board for final approval in April.
