The Cobleskill-Richmondville Central School District is pleased to announce the launch of an exciting long-range strategic planning initiative.
This month, the district convened a new Strategic Planning Committee, and has invited veteran facilitator and consultant Sean Brady, of Prism Decision Systems, to assist the committee with a comprehensive needs assessment and the development of a multi-year strategic plan.
Mr. Brady will work with our team this winter and spring to facilitate a review of our mission and vision and the development of district-level and building-level school improvement plans.
“Our district’s mission statement and core beliefs were developed in 1994,” said Superintendent Carl Mummenthey, “and while they’ve served us well over the past two decades, we feel it’s time to update them to reflect the demands placed on our students and stakeholders in the 21st Century.”
The team met for a two-day workshop on January 5 and 6 to examine and update the district’s mission, vision, and core belief statements. It will meet again for full-day workshops on February 11 and 12 to review the district’s performance in key target areas and to identify performance targets and strategies for improved performance.
“This is an exciting opportunity for our district to reflect on our past success, set ambitious targets, and hold ourselves accountable for continuous growth and improvement,” said Mummenthey.
The district will provide periodic updates on the strategic planning process on the district website, and later this spring, the Strategic Planning Team will present a comprehensive, multi-year strategic plan to the Board of Education for its review and approval.
“Our Strategic Planning Team is a diverse and talented team drawing from important stakeholders including the board of education, administration, faculty, staff, students, parents, and community members. I’m grateful they’ve committed to serving in this role and I’m excited by the promise of across-the-district improvement in several key areas pertaining to student achievement,” said Mummenthey.
