School District Strategic Planning
Northland Community Schools is in the initial stages of developing a strategic plan. The school board is working with representatives from the Minnesota School Boards Association who are providing guidance and assistance with the planning.
The school board is seeking input from school district residents and staff to help in identifying the school district’s strengths and areas for improvement. School district residents and staff can give the school board feedback by completing the Perception Survey The information gathered from the survey will be analyzed by the MSBA and used to help identify school district strategic priorities.
