During their regular meeting on Feb. 28, members of the CCSD Board of School Trustees voted unanimously to approve the strategic plan for CCSD, Focus: 2024, which outlines a plan to achieve the goals laid out by the Board of School Trustees for CCSD over the next five years. These goals include:
* All CCSD schools will be rated three stars or higher on the Nevada School Performance Framework
* At least 90 percent of CCSD students will graduate from high school college and career ready
The Focus: 2024 strategy is based around the theory of action that “the only way we will transform our system and provide the educational experiences our students deserve is to recruit, support and retain the people who help us thrive,” Superintendent Dr. Jesus F. Jara said. “Our people drive our success. In order to realize this plan, we must commit to attracting, growing, retaining and rewarding our people.”
“Our core business is student success,” Jara said. “This is why we all have jobs. We have jobs so that children can learn. We are intent on providing students with equity, accessibility and rigorous instruction, and we will hold ourselves accountable to meet our goals.”
Trustees said they appreciated the plan as a first step toward outlining clear goals to increase student achievement. “It’s a step in the right direction because it provides a blueprint for the community, the Board and the District,” said Board of School Trustees President Lola Brooks.
