MULTI-YEAR STRATEGIC PLAN
In the Near North District School Board, we believe in the power of public education to improve the lives of students, make our communities stronger and the future brighter.
In January 2020 NNDSB launched a progressive strategic planning process to engage students, staff, families and our surrounding educational communities through both face-to-face and virtual platforms. We consulted with students, staff, families and community members about the most important areas upon which to focus to prepare all students for future success and empower all learners through the provision of a thriving and inclusive culture of student achievement and wellbeing.
Next to the selection of an effective leader as our Director, the development of a sound Multi-Year Strategic Plan is the most important Board responsibility." - Chair Aspin
The 2021-2026 strategic plan is the result of many months of consultation and planning in which our communities contributed their voices to identify key priorities for the NNDSB. NNDSB engaged Nanos research to help us to understand where we could change our practice to earn a high degree of public confidence. We hosted online surveys and focus group collaborations for students, parents, and staff, who shared their thinking about the future direction of the NNDSB to help us prioritize our work. The response was overwhelming and impressive, and for that we thank you. This input, combined with Board and industry data, helped us to develop goals that align with the four strategic priorities above. Our plan is exciting and bold and provides clear direction to our Near North District School Board learning community.
Thank you to our community for your guidance, input and leadership.
The 2021-2026 strategic plan guides our processes and the decisions that we make including how we align resources to support our core purpose, student achievement and wellbeing.
We appreciate everyone’s participation in this important process and are very pleased to share our draft 2021-2026 Strategic Plan Summary.
We continue to work collaboratively on a comprehensive plan including specific goals to meet the four priorities.
