Community Engagement Meetings about the CCPS Strategic Plan
Calvert County Public Schools (CCPS) prides itself on educating and preparing each student to succeed in a changing world. Serving more than 15,000 students, the district must rise to the challenge of meeting the unique needs of every student. In order to focus the district’s efforts and ensure positive student outcomes, CCPS consulted with a number of constituent focus groups and convened a Strategic Planning Steering Committee. The committee, comprised of the Superintendent, a school board member, and central office and school-based staff, worked for the past several months to guide the development of a long-term strategic plan. This plan will be a living document that will guide the academic and operational direction of the district for the next five years.
A preliminary draft of the district strategic plan (including the district’s theory of action, priorities, and measurable goals) has been developed through numerous discussions among the Strategic Planning Steering Committee and other central office and school-based staff.
The next step within the strategic planning process is to share the draft, hold discussions, and seek feedback from members of the CCPS community. The district is therefore hosting four community engagement sessions to gather input on the proposed strategic plan. The sessions will be held on:
- June 21 at 9:00 am in the Media Center at Windy Hill Elementary;
- June 21 at 7:00 pm in the Media Center at Calvert Middle School;
- June 22 at 9:00 am in the Media Center at Huntingtown High School; and
- June 22 at 7:00 pm in the Media Center at Southern Middle School.
All community engagement sessions are open to the public, and anyone wishing to share thoughts and feedback on the strategic plan is encouraged to attend. The district hopes for representation at these sessions from various members of the public—including parents, teachers, education experts, business and community leaders, and students.
Community members who are not able to attend one of the sessions may review the draft strategic plan at http://bit.ly/ccpsplan and provide feedback by emailing ThePlan@calvertcounty. education. All comments must be received by 4:00 p.m. on Friday, June 23.
Once the strategic plan has been finalized, CCPS will begin implementing the strategic vision by planning specific initiatives and action steps. These initiatives will outline how CCPS will achieve success in meeting the established priorities and will be monitored regularly by the articulated measurable goals to ensure progress is being made.
