Strategic Plan


Strategic Planning: What is it?

Strategic planning is a management tool. As with any management tool, it is used for one purpose only: to help an organization do a better job - to focus its energy, to ensure that members of the organization are working toward the same goals, to assess and adjust the organization's direction in response to a changing environment. In short, strategic planning is a disciplined effort to produce fundamental decisions and actions that shape and guide what an organization is, what it does, and why it does it, with a focus on the future. (Adapted from Bryson's Strategic Planning in Public and Nonprofit Organizations)

Strategic Plan: What is it?

A strategic plan is a document that summarizes, why an organization exists, what it is trying to accomplish, and how it will go about doing so.

Strategic Planning Assessment: What did we do?

The overall objective of the assessment was to provide the administration of Marietta City Schools, the School Board and other key stakeholders with an understanding of

(1) how well the district fulfills its mission,
(2) the areas/issues that are educational priorities, and
(3) the system’s performance on measures of success.

Strategic Planning Process: How did we do it?

Highlights of the process include:
