Why do you need a long-range plan?

KASB 2013 Strategic Planning Overview

Today’s educational climate is faced with a litany of challenges.  Students within our educational system deserve the very best that we can provide for them regardless of the challenges presented to school systems.  Schools, communities and educational leaders are in a constant balancing act between community desires and needs, and regulation from the state and federal government.  

Over time this balancing act can lead to school systems and communities feeling powerless, despite their best efforts to provide a quality education to the students of their community.  Long range planning can provide a framework for defining a vision for the future of your local school system.  Engaging the community in the long range planning process can be a daunting, but powerful process.  KASB can assist with the long range planning process to insure that desired results are obtained and the future is defined for your school system.  

The following are key outcomes that result from the long range planning process:
