  3. Introduction A Message from the Superintendent This 2000-2003 District Strategic Plan provides the framework for building on our current strengths in ABC and setting a vision and goals for the next three years. The Vision is simple and powerful. We believe students in ABC should be as well educated as any in the world. Right here in our schools. There are five goals with specific yearly targets each of the three years of the plan. The goals are also simple and essential. They speak to student achievement, quality of work life, modern facilities, professional staff, and school-community partnerships. This plan begins a new era in goal setting, accomplishment and accountability in ABC. Traditionally, public schools set and evaluate goals based on processes. ABC will now be evaluated on how it achieves agreed upon expectations and levels of performance. In order to determine how well we are doing, we have invented our own district-wide evaluation plan that will use different measures to assess progress on our goals. This “evaluation pie” is outlined in this plan. Our District Strategic Planning Committee will provide the leadership in evaluating district goal achievement via the “pie” and assist in reporting results to staff and community. In ABC we believe that all parts of the school district should function as an integrated system working together to support the classroom teacher. This approach provides a focus of energy, talent and resources aimed at our “Main Thing” which is student achievement. It has been said that young people are our future. True enough. It is also true that we adults are their future. This plan is a simple framework to help ensure that future. Ron Barnes Superintendent ABC Unified School District Technology integrated into the classroom. i

  4. Strategic Plan Goals Format • The goals in the strategic plan are organized in the following way: • Goal Statement • Quality Indicators • Annual Targets • This format allows you to see the overall goal first, followed by the quality indicators used to measure whether the goal is being achieved. Annual targets also have been established for each year. An evaluation process including a multiple measures approach will be used to assess the District’s efforts in meeting the goals. • By adopting this approach, the District is intentionally requiring a significantly higher level of accountability. The key to our success will be the continued involvement of our students, parents, staff and community in achieving our goals. ii
