The first step is to write the Strategic Goal.
Behind Tab 3 of your binder are suggested Strategic Goals for each area.
These are suggestions and your SGT may choose to re-write the goal.
The goal should be “true” ideas/issues generated by the School Community Planning Team in the “Critical External/Internal Issues”.
Once your goal is written, the mission of the Strategic Goal Team is to identify the “best program idea” or “program ideas” to accomplish the assigned strategic goal through an effective team problem solving and consensus decision-making process.
