Strategic Planning provides a framework and guidance for organizations to fulfill their missions with optimal efficiency and impact. HYA’s Strategic Planning framework employs a research-based method of inquiry allowing school districts to create their own futures, focused on students, through rigorous community engagement, followed by operational execution. A strategic plan ensures the Board and Superintendent agree to what the expectations are for the organization and therefore, guides decisions and ensures energy is directed toward advancing the priorities of the community as articulated by the Board. Please read the HYA Strategic Planning Brochure and corresponding White Paper for a full description of our process and the research behind our approach. Note that any phase can be tailored to meet the unique needs and budget of the district. The HYA Strategic Planning Process consists of three phases.
