During the 2013-2014 school year, the Sun Prairie Area School District embarked on a new initiative, the development of a strategic plan. After more than 60 SWOT analysis meetings with different community stakeholders. The findings of the SWOT analysis found the district markedly behind in technology with no 1:1 computer initiative. The lack of a long-range facilities plan with or district-wide capital maintenance plan was putting the district’s facilities at risk. Overcrowding at almost every school in the district was disrupting student access and opportunity, and with no district Facebook page or a communication engagement plan, the community felt the district was not fulfilling its obligation to communicate and engage the community. Additional SWOT analysis results included concerns about the school lunch program, a lack of gifted and talented programming, concerns about the lack of curriculum revision and outdated materials, a poor performing compensation system, and lack of any plan for staff growth and student equity.
After Community Conversation with more than 50 community members, the SPASD developed its first Strategic Plan. The Strategic Plan was launched in the 2014-2015 school year. Over the last five years, Sun Prairie has worked through our strategic plan which was focused on four main pillars: Teaching & Learning, Workforce Focus, Community Engagement, and Facilities & Operations. Within each of these pillars, our District has achieved many goals to evolve and improve for our community and children we serve.
By working collaboratively and staying focused on our strategic plan and priorities, the future is bright for the SPASD.
