Strategic plan: We need your feedback on the framework

MVWSD is working on a new Strategic Plan. The new six-year Strategic Plan 2027 will be completed and aligned with two cycles of the District’s 3-year Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) and will build on and expand the former plan’s successes and areas of need for students. 

Here’s what was completed in September:

* Conducted districtwide survey with 1134 respondents

* Facilitated input sessions in District wide groups (PTA leaders, DELAC, DAC)

* Facilitated a strategy session with 60 representative stakeholders (parents, board members, teachers, classified staff, school administrators and district leaders)

This work and stakeholder input resulted in:

* A report to the Board of Trustees (please see the Strategic Plan presentation, Oct. 1, 2020)

* A strategic plan framework that shows five major goal areas and the general outcomes and themes in each.

Before going to the next step of developing performance metrics and defining specific strategic initiatives, MVWSD is seeking input on the “big ideas” in this strategic plan framework.  By gathering your input, we can ensure this plan builds on the strengths and assets of our school system, while addressing the most promising opportunities to enhance our work. 

Please take a few minutes before Friday, October 16 to click on the link below, review the framework, and reply to the survey with your ideas or items that you feel are missing.

The survey is managed by a third-party consultant.  All responses will go directly to them and will be anonymous.

“The Talk:” Police Interactions and Race: A Panel Discussion

The talk graphicDate: Thursday, Oct. 29, 6:30 p.m. on Zoom:

For Black children, the “talk” about how to interact with police is a rite of passage. Join MVWSD for a panel discussion with parents, the Mountain View Police Department and other leaders about what this means for policing for all of our children and families in our community and schools.

Together We Are a Better MVWSD: Special edition: ELECTION!
Election editionMountain View Whisman School District embraces its role in establishing its commitment to equity in our district. As part of our "Together We Are a Better MVWSD" series, here is a special edition on the Nov. 3 election.

Participating in elections is one of the key freedoms of American life. Many people in countries around the world do not have the same freedom, nor did many Americans in centuries past. No matter what you believe or whom you support, it is important to exercise your rights. We celebrate the upcoming election cycle by publishing materials for teachers and parents that promote civic engagement amongst students and give resources to parents about how to secure their participation in this year's election. Both the links and QR codes will take you directly to the recommended resources.
