School board to hold early-bird special meeting Tuesday

From page A6 | September 15, 2013 |

The Davis school board will hold a special meeting at 7:45 a.m. Tuesday in the East Conference Room at the school district’s administrative office, 526 B St.,  to review the pool of applicants for the school district’s soon-to-be-formed Strategic Planning Committee.

Tuesday morning’s special meeting is a prequel to the regular school board meeting at 7 p.m. Thursday in the Community Chambers at Davis City Hall, 23 Russell Blvd., at which the school board is expected to formally vote to approve the membership of the Strategic Planning Committee.

The Strategic Planning Committee will spend much of the school year preparing long-range recommendations regarding long-term priorities and goals for the school district during the coming decade. These recommendations will be part of a report that the committee will present to the school board in the spring.

School board president Sheila Allen said: “The Board has decided to take the time and resources over the next school year to look to the future for our entire school district in order to create goals and a road map to get there.  The first step in the process is the work of the strategic planning committee that will identify these goals.  The 26-member strategic planning committee — made up of reflective individuals who represent a wide cross-section of the school district and Davis community — will set the course for the yearlong discussion that will include many more individuals as a part of the work groups.

“At our special meeting on Tuesday we will be reviewing the nominations selected by board members to be sure we have captured the broadest possible perspectives in the community,” Allen added. “For example, we would like parents and teachers across different grade levels and community members and leaders.  No decisions will be made at the special meeting on Tuesday morning.  Final discussions and vote for the strategic committee composition will occur at our regular meeting on Thursday evening.”
