East Greenbush Central School District administrators presented an updated version of the Strategic Plan Scorecard to the Board of Education at its February 27 public meeting, showing 58 of 79 district-wide initiatives are either completed or in progress.
The Strategic Plan Scorecard was created at the start of the 2017-18 school year as an accountability tool for objectives tied directly to the Board Goals, which are established by the Board of Education prior to each school year.
The 2018-19 Board Goals include:
- Maintain academic excellence
- Effectively deliver educational, human and fiscal resources to enhance student achievement and to ensure sustainability and future growth of the school community
- Continue positive collaborative relationships and communication with town, village, county and state elected officials and nonprofit organizations
- Cultivate a progressive, innovative and safe environment and culture for all students and staff
Beneath each Board Goal on the Strategic Plan Scorecard is a set of objectives and strategies with responsible stakeholders, measurable indicators, a timeline, their status and notes.
“The scorecard has been a great tool for communication and accountability,” said Superintendent Jeff Simons. “It enables our administration to stay on track with important initiatives which advance our schools. Discussions of the scorecard with the Board of Education provides essential communication to ensure the board is informed of our progress and to solicit feedback. The board’s input is invaluable to ensure we meet the community’s expectations for its schools.”
The Strategic Plan Scorecard is presented to the Board of Education three times each school year.
“The Strategic Plan Scorecard, aligned with the goals of our district, has provided the board with an excellent, comprehensive tool to see how we as a district are doing relative to those goals throughout the year,” said Board of Education President Michael Buono. “The board can then provide feedback, support and guidance where necessary. It also allows the community to see the depth of the work that our staff are doing to meet the needs of our students.”
