Masconomet Strategic Planning Initiative
In 2022-2023, the Masconomet Regional School District (Masco) is engaging in an aspirational, community conversation to redefine what success should look like for our students and schools and to embrace the practices that will enable the district to realize that vision.
With excellent educators and tremendous community support, Masco has a tradition of high performance. We strive to both honor that tradition and also prepare our students for a rapidly changing world. Post-covid, we must embrace the idea that schools may need to look different than we remember, programs must become increasingly nimble, and the mental health and resiliency of both children and adults are essential.
During this fourteen (14) month engagement, we will ask: what competencies and attributes should the Masco graduate demonstrate? What programs and systems are in place to ensure they are prepared for meaningful work and citizenry? Where are their opportunities to start, stop or accelerate programming to continually evolve and adapt to a changing student profile and world? What is our culture and process for planning? We will review and revise our vision, and craft a shared plan for how Masco might balance personnel, programming, and policy decisions over the next three to five years (2023-2026). We will not rush the process, but rather will be deliberate and thoughtful in developing a plan that is both a guide and a tool for measuring future performance and progress.
We welcome your ideas. All interested parties, especially students, will have opportunities to share their perspectives and suggestions. Whenever possible, we will utilize surveys and focus groups to amplify our many voices. We will prioritize regular communications, collaboration and shared problem solving during this process.
A team of faculty, school leadership, and community members will serve as the organizers, data collectors, authors and co-leaders of this work. Together they will direct and inform the process. With guidance by an outside facilitator, they will explore and craft strategic objectives and initiatives, find consensus, and make recommendations for planning, communications, leadership, and resources. A final document will be completed by November 1, 2023.
