Ridgeview’s Strategic Plan 2022 has been finalized and approved.


​Earlier this year, Fulton County Schools rolled out their Strategic Plan 2022. Centered around four primary focus areas (see figure above - click the image for full version), this plan is a guide to how the district and community will work together to prepare all students to graduate ready to pursue and succeed in their chosen paths.

Ridgeview's Strategic Plan 2022 supports the four focus areas established by Fulton County. Over the next five years, we will build upon our on-going commitment to student achievement; ensure a positive environment for students, staff and community; work to develop and engage effective community partnerships; promote fiscal responsibility; and focus on effective communication with all stakeholders.
