The Tempe Union High School District Governing Board approved Wednesday a strategic plan for the district after only minor adjustments by administration. Executive director of the Nevada Association of School Administrators Ralph Cadwallader presented the plan, which was developed in three months by a plethora of "stakeholders," including district employees, local business affiliates, feeder elementary school district employees and Arizona State University representatives. "I have never worked with a group as committed as they were," Cadwallader said. "We accomplished in three months what usually takes a year." The plan includes a mission statement, eight core values, three goals with corresponding objectives and an over-arching vision statement. It is what Cadwallader refers to as a "living document" that will be modified and improved each year. The goals of strategic plan include increasing student achievement, optimizing the use of all resources to accomplish district goals and recruiting and retaining highly qualified, diverse staff. "Things happened after this was written that caused the district to modify the stakeholders' recommendations," TUHSD Superintendent Steve Adolph said after Cadwallader's presentation. A major goal objective, to pass the multi-million dollar Maintenance and Operations Fund and capital overrides that were voted down for the 2008-09 school year for the 2009-10 school year, was added by the district. The stakeholders' mission statement, Committed to Excellence in Teaching and Learning, was modified to Excellence in Teaching and Learning, and "over-arching" was removed from the vision statement to eliminate confusion. The action plan for each goal will be refined by goal committees in January, as well as the completed strategic plan will be presented to the governing board Feb. 4 and distributed to all stakeholders. "This will only be effective if developed with the involvement of stakeholders and board members and developed, reviewed and modified on an annual basis," Cadwallader said. A status report will be presented to the governing board in July and an annual review and recommitment of the plan will take place in August.
