LISD underwent a transformative process during the 2011-2012 school year to determine our aspirations for educating our students for the 21st century.
In the first phase, LISD held six summits in September 2011 to begin the conversation with the community about this undertaking. Students, parents, community members and staff met in focus groups and answered an online survey to gather additional community input in the second phase about what education should look like in LISD. In the third phase, the Strategic Design Team developed LISD’s new core beliefs, vision, mission and goals from the information gathered from the summits, focus groups and the survey.
In the fourth phase, subcommittees were formed to create LISD’s action plan to carry out those goals. LISD is very appreciative of the 5,000 people who participated in the Strategic Design process.
After approval from the Strategic Design Team, the LISD Board of Trustees approved the Strategic Design Plan in June 2012.
