The Danville School Board approved the division’s 2021-2026 strategic plan during their June 3, 2021 meeting.
Since the beginning of the year, Danville Public Schools staff has been working to create a strategic plan for the next five years that will serve as a roadmap to success and address the division’s gaps to become a better school district.
In collaboration with the Virginia School Boards Association, the division started the process by surveying teachers, students, staff and community members, as well as holding community meetings. In reviewing the data collected, stakeholders established goals, objectives and a mission.
“Some of the most powerful community meetings we held were with the students,” Superintendent Dr. Angela Hairston said of the planning process.
Feedback allowed staff to come up with a mission statement, which is to “inspire, educate, and develop students in collaboration with families and the community, to ensure students graduate college and/or career ready.” The division’s vision is to create a school division that cultivates excellence for all.
We envision a school division that cultivates excellence for all.
