Empower, challenge, and support every learner to grow every day.
Centerville City Schools creates a collaborative learning environment that responds to the needs of each learner, fosters growth, and prepares individuals to be responsible community-minded members of society.
About the Strategic Plan Process
Over the past two years, we have embarked on a strategic planning process to help guide our priorities moving forward. This collaborative process included input from a variety of stakeholders, including district and building administrators, the Board of Education, students, staff, parents and community leaders through focus groups, surveys and a dedicated design team.
The design team engaged in several sessions to dialog about effective and research-based educational trends and to create a shared understanding of future goals for our district. This included building on past work in the district, such as our Leading the Rebound strategies, the District Diversity Plan, our partnership with the Institute of Applied Creativity for Transformation at the University of Dayton, and the Master Facilities Plan, among others. The design team identified a vision, core principles and focus areas to help us meet our mission of empowering, challenging and supporting every learner to grow every day.
This summer, we will be aligning our practices and processes across the district as we begin working on our 2022-23 action plan. We plan to provide updates to the community and the Board of Education during meetings and on this website.
We are excited to share our future-focused strategic plan with the community, and we are grateful for your partnership and commitment to providing excellent educational opportunities for children in Centerville-Washington Township.
