The Policy & Planning Committee of the MKCHS School Board is charged with the responsibility of developing and updating the Strategic Plan for our school and the Kelly community. The committee has focused much of its energy and time this school year in reevaluating our current Strategic Plan and the role of an advisory board in implementing goals and assisting the school and its staff in completing those goals. Moving forward, the committee will be recording and outlining the short-term and long-range goals for the school in hopes of providing a “snap shot” of the direction and focus of the school for the community and its supporters. The Strategic Plan will continuously evolve and we hope to update it on a monthly basis as goals are completed and new goals are developed. The board, administration, and staff will provide and record goals included in the Strategic Plan, but we also hope to see the crucial contributions from the various parent-driven organizations at Kelly. We appreciated those that took the time to provide insight and suggestions in the Strategic Plan Questionnaire that was sent out this past fall. The comments provided will be used as we continue to develop the Strategic Plan. Ultimately, the Strategic Plan will provide insight into the shared vision and the focused efforts of our community to make our school better today and for years to come.
