Charting the Course for Whitefish Bay’s Future
In the spring of 2010 the School Board committed to a Visioning and Planning initiative to update and refresh the 2001 District Focus Plan. The development of a plan to establish goals and priorities, guide allocation of resources and establish benchmarks for improvement efforts is an important priority for the District. The District remains committed to building upon our strengths as we move to the future. Successes will not slow us down in our efforts to become yet an even better School District. The updated Focus Plan, which outlines the district’s continuous improvement efforts, was approved by the Board of Education on January 11, 2012.
Below is a summary of the planning process which led to the new 2012 Board of Education approved Focus Plan.
