• cafeIn 2018, the School District of University City launched a new strategic plan to ensure its vision of Learning Reimagined. 

    The plan was created after nearly a year of public, parent, staff and professional input guided by national research and modeled after other successful school districts. The plan was based on a vision, mission and guiding principle:

    • Vision: Our students are well-educated, capable, and ethical citizens who positively impact society.

    • Mission: Ensure every student graduates college and career ready.

    • Guiding Principle: Transform the life of every student every day.

      The plan has Five Strategic Priorities:

    • Modern, Rigorous and Relevant Learning Experiences
    • Well-Being and Joy for students, staff and families
    • Excellent Staff
    • All Hands, by leveraging diverse, high quality partnerships
    • Resources, strategically deployed

    Each year, District Cabinet leaders work together to create specific action plans to address each strategic priority with tactics, milestones and progress. Plans are reviewed on a quarterly basis.The strategic plan and ensuing action plans and milestones ensure continued growth and accelerated progress by:

    • Fostering alignment and clarity
    • Setting priorities for human and financial resources
    • Clarifying accountability
    • Informing the budget process
    • Creating consistent logic and language
    • Establishing constancy of purpose
