How Did We Get Here?

Planning & Development


Why Strategic Planning?

Over several months, the Orange County community developed a strategic plan to guide the work of the school district. Strategic planning allows us to:

  • Engage our community in meaningful ways.

  • Build partnerships and public confidence.

  • Create and communicate a shared vision internally and externally.

  • Demonstrate the courage to abandon status quo thinking.

  • Decide how to spend new money and/or how to make cuts without sacrificing quality.

  • Determine which programs/initiatives are right for your students and/or which ones to abandon.

Our challenge is rethinking how we do things and identifying the systems that need to be put into place in order for us to move our system forward. A completed strategic plan makes our priorities clear, ensures full transparency, and uses measurable outcomes to hold us accountable for maintaining focus on what will benefit our students.

Strategic Planning Teams were recognized at the June 5, 2023 School Board meeting. Pictured above are representatives from the six teams, a planning team and five action teams, who contributed to the development of the school division’s draft strategic plan.
OCPS is grateful for the team members’ commitment to the future of our students, staff, families, and community.
