Strategic Action Planning


The Smithville School District is embarking on a district-wide strategic planning process through May 2023.

The intention of the process is to bring together students, community members and staff through extensive engagement to identify Smithville’s ‘Portrait of a Graduate’ and vision for the future of the Smithville School District. The Smithville School District’s strategic action planning project will produce a five-year Strategic Action Plan that will provide comprehensive direction for school years 2023-2024 through 2028-2029.
