Oswego City School District 2021 – 2024 Strategic Plan

Dear Oswego City School District Community:
I am writing to share that recently the district developed a new multi-year strategic plan that will be implemented this upcoming school year (2021 – 2022).  This plan, which was created with the support of various stakeholders, is focused on improving the overall performance of our district. Additionally, this plan will serve as a guide and/or roadmap for the district as we move forward.

As a part of this plan the district created new mission and vision statements and core beliefs. Additionally, the district set new strategic priorities and strategies, -- which professional development and district resources and/or supports are now aligned to.

Our new mission is to educate, inspire and empower all students. Our new vision is to be an innovative, high – performing district that graduates every student. Our new set of core beliefs are:
  1. Students come first!
  2. Everyone can learn and grow.
  3. We ensure equity and create access and opportunity for all.
  4. Diversity is embraced and celebrated.
  5. We provide a safe environment that supports and engages learners.
  6. Everyone is treated with respect and dignity.
  7. We value honesty, integrity and perseverance.
  8. Date and evidence inform our decisions.
  9. We promote creativity and innovation; and
  10. Community, collaboration and partnerships are vital to our success.
Our key priorities and strategies are as follows:
  1. Engage – The district will deliver exceptional learning experiences by ensuring rigorous, aligned and relevant curriculum and instruction.
  2. Support – The district will address students’ diverse social, emotional and academic needs by expanding and providing supportive structures that improve the achievement of all students.
  3. Partner – The district will develop strong relationship by nurturing and growing parent involvement and community partnerships; and
  4. Build – The district will optimize the efficient use of district resources by developing and maintaining long-range plans that address budget, operations, facilities, personnel and programs.

A copy of our strategic plan has been posted to this webpage. I invite you to view this page to learn more about our plan.

With that said, please know that I thank you in advance for your time, efforts and support of our district. Should you have any questions or concerns, please free to reach out to the district at 315-341-2000.
