Help plot the course for Central Valley

The Central Valley Board of Education is seeking nominations for participants to serve on the district’s Strategic Planning teams for the 2016-17 school year. This community-wide effort will help reinvent the school district in order to provide students with an education that prepares them for today’s world and the challenges of tomorrow.

Outside facilitators will assist developing a long-range district vision that establishes core values, shared purpose, strategic objectives and action plans. Participants will develop a plan draft in the fall, develop measurement tools beginning in December, create action plans starting in January, and present a comprehensive strategic plan to the Board of Education on March 30, 2016.

“These decision affects all of our Thunder, so we are enlisting the participation of the entire school community,” said Superintendent Rich Hughes.

Community members may nominate themselves or others to serve on one of two committees—the Strategic Planning Team or the Strategic Partners Team. The nomination form and more information regarding the individual teams is included the Strategic Planning Packet (PDF) or by contacting the district office at 315-894-9934. You can also submit by completing the Strategic Planning Nomination Form online.

Anyone selected must be committed to attend all meetings. Completed forms must be returned to the district office or email to Dr. Hughes at by Oct. 16.
