Strategic Plan Team

​The district strategic plan was developed in 2014 by a team comprised of the individuals below. It was a 6 month collaborative process that engaged the community in determining the strategic direction of the district from 2015-2020. Archives from those meetings can be found in the navigation bar to the left of the page.

The district's strategic plan identifies five long-term goals and nine corresponding strategies that define the work of the district. Download a copy of the one page strategic plan here.
