Vision 2018

A five-year strategic plan for the school system, Vision 2018: Fulfilling the Promise of Preparation was launched on July 1, 2013. This plan reflects the goals and priorities for our school system of more than 2400 stakeholders – parents, staff, students, and community members – who provided input through focus groups, listen and learn sessions, surveys, and other venues. It projects a vision for the kind of educational program that every child deserves: one where students are inspired to learn, challenged to grow and empowered to reach for their goals.

The document articulates a mission, guiding principles, and vision for the HCPSS, and is organized into four goals that define the targeted future state in relation to students, staff, families and the community, and the organization as a whole. Specific strategies are identified under each goal area, as well as performance measures that will be used to track success over the five-year implementation period.
