Fulton County Schools has developed a system of cohesive school planning practices that demonstrates the district’s commitment to ensuring each Fulton County Schools student graduates on time and is supremely prepared for college and career, as outlined in the district’s strategic plan, Building Our Future 2017.
Primary objectives of the district’s school planning framework include:
1. Identifying and prioritizing opportunity areas to improve student achievement results
2. Creating plans to achieve specific student performance gains and meet student needs
3. Increasing transparency and accountability
District and school leaders are directly accountable for achieving the objectives and initiatives outlined in each school’s plan. A critical component of the district’s school planning model is developing engaging, transparent dialogue with parents, students, and community. Well-informed, involved parents and community members are vital to building a supportive, challenging school environment where students can fully meet their potential for academic, social, and personal growth.
Whether your particular school is participating in Cohort 1, 2, or 3, as well as whether your school is a Title I designated campus, this planning framework creates a clear, understandable path for success for all students, and a method to effectively communicate this direction to all stakeholders.
