Strategic Coherence Planning

The Ridgefield Public School District is undertaking a strategic coherence planning process with the goal of presenting a plan to the Ridgefield Board of Education in early 2017. In this process, a group of administrators, teachers, Board of Education members, and community members will do a data-based review of current district practice in order to create a system of schools dedicated to the same student success outcomes. The district will compile the results of this process into a systemic strategic coherence plan that will show a pathway of progress for the schools for the next three to five years. To learn more about the planning process, we invite you to view our Planning Process Guide.

Update: As scheduled, on February 6, a first draft of the Strategic Coherence Plan was presented to the Board of Education and approved as a framework for planning our 2017-2018 budget. The plan continues to be refined in committee, and once complete, will be presented to the BOE for final approval.
