Process Used for Strategic Plan Development
The strategic planning work started in September 2016 with a commitment from the North Bend School Board members and Superintendent to undertake a year-long process to review where the District currently is and then to create a multi-year, strategic plan for the future that starts in July 2017 and stays in place through the end of the 2021-22 school year. The District contracted with strategic planning consultant, Jerome Colonna, to facilitate the process.

The team met once a month from September 2016 to May 2017 to create this strategic plan. The team’s initial task was to organize a District and community-wide series of focus groups to collect baseline information for the team to utilize for the creation of the overall plan. On October 12th and 13th staff, students, parents and various community interest groups participated in 12 individual focus group sessions held throughout North Bend. When the focus group report was completed the team started developing five individual components of the report: District Values and Beliefs; District Mission Statement; District Vision Statement; District Strategic Goal, Performance Indicators and Measures; and Implementation and Accountability Strategies.
