The Limestone District School Board is nearing completion of its new strategic plan to help guide its work over the next five years. The purpose of a strategic plan is to set priorities and focus our energy and resources on areas that support our mission: We prepare students within safe and inclusive environments to embrace a changing world as lifelong learners and informed, responsible citizens, and to help us realize our new vision: As a community of engaged and innovative learners everyone achieves success and well-being.
Before the Board of Trustees worked with staff to develop our new priorities, we asked our stakeholders what role they think schools should play in our communities across our district. From early December 2016 to early February 2017, stakeholders – students, families, staff, community partners and the general public – were invited to provide their input and feedback on The Road Ahead: Navigating the Future of Education Together. This input was gathered using a variety of methods including an online survey, telephone town halls, identification of priority areas, Twitter chats, and face-to-face meetings.
The new multi-year plan will replace Success For All – Strategic Directions: 2009-2016.

How we used your input
The input received during the consultation process helped the Board of Trustees identify key areas and expectations on where we should focus our work. In addition to feedback from stakeholders, the process included research and a review of effective practices in education, Board and ministry data, and expectations of the Ministry of Education. We plan to share our new strategic directions and plan in the fall of 2017.
