FRENCHTOWN SCHOOL DISTRICT STRATEGIC PLAN
FTSD is in the second year of its strategic plan which was developed during the 2014-2015 school year by the district with input from board members, staff, students, parents and community members. The strategic plan sets a “Five Year Planning Horizon” with outcome-oriented goals and strategic objectives to guide the district through the next five years.
The following thinking represents goals for the next five years. They are areas in which Frenchtown Public Schools will explicitly state the conditions or attributes it wants to achieve. These outcome statements will define, "what will constitute future success." The achievement of each goal will move the school district toward realization of its Envisioned Future.
Strategic Objectives provide direction and actions on how the school district will accomplish its articulated goals. All strategies included in the strategic plan should be considered accomplishable at some point in the future. Strategic Objectives are reviewed annually by the Frenchtown Board of Trustees, Staff Leadership Team, faculty and community.
