Our Five Year Strategic Plan

A Relentless Commitment

Superintendent image

We are proud to present our strategic plan for 2024-2029 to our district and our broader community. Our board adopted a powerful mission statement in 2021 that states: The School District of South Milwaukee acts with a relentless commitment to remove barriers and care for all students so they feel accepted and will learn without exception. We now have a strategic plan that adds a vision statement, core values, and goals that help us define what we do each day to ensure we meet that mission.   

A strategic plan is a road map that includes our goals to meet our future. A clearly defined strategic direction unifies our efforts around a shared mission and vision, guiding improvement efforts across the school district. Collaboratively, our team of more than 50 staff, parents, students, a board member, and our district leaders established priorities for the student experience, our employee experience, community engagement and communications, and fiscal stability and facility management. That dedicated group of volunteers spent weeks planning for and refining our core values, vision, and goals, which we are excited to share with all our stakeholders.  

Our plan provides the systems that will lead our improvement efforts and hold us accountable for the outcomes we seek to achieve. With enthusiasm and purpose, we embark on meeting our goals as good stewards to our community stakeholders and creating the best opportunities for all our students. 

We firmly believe that working in conjunction with our caregivers to help our students develop a plan to meet their post-secondary goals, whether that means going on to a two- or four-year college, the military, straight into the world of work, or any other pathway that is right for the student,  is the core of public education. Today’s students are tomorrow’s leaders, and with the community’s support through their education, we will ensure a better future for all.

In the coming years, we will provide our community with regular updates on our progress toward our goals. We are excited to partner to enhance the experience for our students, create the right conditions for our employees, engage our community, keep them informed, and plan for our long-term fiscal stability and use of our facilities.
