  • Strategic Planning Process Update

    Earlier this year the Roosevelt School District, along with the WestEd research service agency embarked in a strategic planning process. The goal of the strategic plan is to guide the District in determining how best to allocate and maximize resources in order to provide high-quality instruction and support to students, as well as maintain and strengthen its relationship with the community through meaningful stakeholder engagement. As part of the process, WestEd in partnership with the district conducted a comprehensive needs assessment to serve as the foundation for building a strategic plan that is inclusive and reflective of the needs of south Phoenix. This process included extensive engagement and data collection about the current state of the school district resulting in an assessment that identifies the organization’s strengths as well as areas of need.
