School Board Strategic Challenge
What’s Your School Board’s Next Strategic Challenge?

By Dustin McKissen, October 07, 2016

Everyone knows that school boards face big challenges.

So what is your district’s most pressing issue?

Is it teacher retention? Is it increasing standardized test scores? Is it reducing classroom size? Is it getting more technology in the classroom? Improving parent involvement? What about creating more STEM activities and opportunities for students? Is your district concerned about funding?

Chances are, your school district is dealing with those challenges—and potentially much more. Leading a school district in today’s world is not an easy task. Limited time and funds compete with almost limitless demands. That’s why creating a high-performing district requires talented staff and dedicated school board members.

Luckily, you have a talented staff and board members who are passionate about your learning community.

Now you need to get them all in a room together to discuss the future of the district and the kids you serve. However, bringing your district leadership into the same room to talk about your district’s future isn’t enough.

You need more than that.

Your school district needs a strategic plan.

That’s why BoardPaq has developed the first collaborative strategic planning tool designed to help engage your district's leadership team in developing high-impact strategies that get your learning community to the next level.
