Strategic Plan

The 2021- 2026  Center School District’s Strategic Plan

A strategic plan serves as a roadmap to achieve and accomplish goals of improving student outcomes while meeting the everchanging needs of students and community. The strategic plan outlines the actions needed to achieve goals, aims and objectives with a focus on planning and designing strategies for the next generation of learning.  

The 2021-2026 Strategic Plan was approved by the Center School District Board of Education during the regularly scheduled July, 26, 2021 meeting.

The plan was created through a six-month process. Starting with a desire to plan for our future in an innovative and creative way, Center School District established a framework to gather input from internal and external stakeholders. From teachers to parents and students to community members, we’ve gathered ideas and dreams from a variety of people connected to our community.

The plan aligns with the vision and mission for the future of CSD schools.

Our Vision: 

“Ensure each student thrives in a future -focused learning environment as they build their skills becoming responsible citizens.”

Our Mission:

“Each student and every staff member will demonstrate high achievement, character and collaboration in a diverse community.”  

Our Core Values:
