Developing an “implementation roadmap” is the next step in the Sioux Falls School District’s Strategic Plan. Following completion of the Design Phase, a new committee of building principals and central office administrators met in April for what will be a series of monthly meetings to create a list of current District initiatives and align those initiatives with priorities identified in the Strategic Plan.
All priorities will be tracked and monitored throughout the process. The roadmap will articulate what steps need to occur, by when and by whom. These steps are developed with the theory of action in mind. Developed by the Design Committee, the theory of action emphasizes staff empowerment, innovation, and a culture of continuous improvement. It reads:
• “If the Sioux Falls School District empowers all staff to successfully innovate to meet the unique and changing needs of our students and promotes a culture of excellence and continuous improvement by measuring and monitoring performance across all levels of the organization; then together we will enable each and every student to succeed.”
Because stakeholder engagement has been, and continues to be, an integral part of the process, regular progress reports will be presented to the School Board during the implementation phase.
