A Strategic Plan Supporting the Goals & Guardrails

  • The new CPS Strategic Plan leverages the framework of the Board's Goals & Guardrails, new vision and mission statements, and forecast. This plan clarifies and defines the work needed to achieve the Goals & Guardrails approved by the Board of Education. The plan unifies the district and community under a shared approach and practice while engaging the community and galvanizing support and resources for the district. It also will assist and guide budgetary decisions and resource allocations, shape the overall direction and day-to-day work of CPS.

    The Goals & Guardrails approved by the Board of Education is the framework of the plan and supports the theory of action to define the strategies.
