Verona Board of Education Seeks Members for Strategic Plan Action Team Committee


VERONA, NJ - The Verona Public School District is in the development phase of our next five year Strategic Plan.

It is important to the Board and Administration that our strategic plan represents the opinions of our community. The Strategic Plan Steering Committee recently completed important work on our  district mission statement, values and core beliefs, and strategic goals. The revised strategies are as follows:

1. Secure and optimize financial resources
2. Uphold a healthy and respectful school culture consistent with our core values
3. Partner locally and globally to expand opportunities for our school community
4. Continue to implement an engaging curriculum with meaningful experiences
5. Provide relevant professional development and resources to support dynamic teaching
6. Continue to provide upgraded technology and sustainable facilities
The next step in the strategic planning process is to form Action Teams that will meet from March -
May 2018 to develop action plans for each of the strategies outlined in the Strategic Plan. We are
calling on board members, administrators, faculty, parents, community members, and high school
students to participate on action teams to review and refine each of our strategies and the goals that
will guide our district work over the next five years. Participation on these action teams is open to
the entire community and will require evening commitments from participants. A kickoff meeting
will be scheduled in March (date and time to be determined).
