At STEM School Highlands Ranch we put innovation at the center of learning to unleash the potential of all students and prepare them for an exponentially changing world.
A strategic plan creates a long-term vision for a school-based upon what has made the organization successful in the past. The mission, values, strategies and brand promise ground the school in behaviors that generate success while the Big Hairy Audacious Goal and Goals provide direction to build upon those successful behaviors.
As part of our contract to re-charter within the Douglas County School District, we were asked to provide a strategic plan. Our strategy process started in 2017 and in August we started a rigorous updating.
At the STEM School of Highlands Ranch, the Board of Directors has designated a Strategic Planning Committee that represents each stakeholder group within our community. These eleven people meet quarterly to update the plan and advise the Board. The community owns the plan; that is why each stakeholder group is represented on the committee. The Executive Director and administrative team are accountable for the implementation of the plan.
