Seguin ISD MS Redesign

 

 

Strategic Plan 2025
 
A new three-year strategic plan was adopted by the Seguin ISD Board of Trustees in June 2022.   Monthly updates on the strategic plan will be shared with the Board of Trustees beginning August 2022 and can be found in the “Presentations + Resource Links” section below.

 

 

Strategic planning is defined as an organizational management activity that is used to set priorities, focus energy and resources, strengthen operations, and ensure that employees and other stakeholders are working toward common goals. It sets a clear direction for an organization.

 

Seguin ISD currently has a three-year strategic plan that was developed and adopted during the 2017-2018 school year. With that plan set to expire at the end of the 2020-2021 school year, the district has started engaging in developing a new three-year strategic plan that will run through the 2024-2025 school year. Strategic planning is incorporated as part of SISD’s participation in TEA’s System of Great Schools Network.

 

 

 

The process of developing a new strategic plan began in July 2021 with the development of an Internal Steering Committee. A Visioning Task Force, made up of various district stakeholders, met over four days in October and December 2021 to identify areas of opportunity for the district. These findings were used to develop seven new Strategic Goals and four Strategic Priorities that will drive the work of the district over the next three years. The timeline below shows additional steps in the process with the final draft being presented to the Board of Trustees at the June meeting.
