This school year the Oak Harbor Public Schools launched a community-wide initiative to build the roadmap to success and vision as #OneOakHarbor. The Strategic Plan will drive the district’s vision, goals, initiatives, and strategies to ensure every student has what they need to succeed in Oak Harbor Public Schools.
Throughout the strategic planning process, there will be multiple opportunities for students, families, staff, and community members to share their perspectives and provide input to the vision of Oak Harbor Public Schools. The goal is to hear from as many diverse perspectives as possible to ensure the Strategic Plan is grounded in the voices of the #OneOakHarbor community and responsive to the ever-changing needs within our schools and our community.
There will be a lot of ways for the community to participate in the strategic planning process. Consider signing up to be a part of something bigger in our community! We are looking for trailblazers to pave the path to student success by attending an upcoming focus group, participating in a committee, or completing a survey that will be shared with the community soon.
Listening & Learning
On November 8 and 9, we hosted listening sessions with families, students, and staff.
A survey was sent to families on November 14, 2023.
Stay informed about the process. Keep up-to-date with committee work and progress. Send your questions or feedback at anytime to email@example.com.
Community Core Strategic Planning Committee
The purpose of the Community Core Strategic Planning Committee is to collaboratively listen to the perspectives of Oak Harbor students, staff, families, board members, and community members to drive the roadmap to success and vision for Oak Harbor Public Schools. This committee includes more than 60 volunteer representatives who meet once a month during the 2023-2024 school year.
The District Leadership Team (DLT) is a team of 10 administrative staff who also serve on the Community Core Strategic Planning Committee. The role of the DLT is to synthesize the information shared by stakeholders and draft the vision and organizational values statement.
