Strategic Planning Summary | November 8, 2019
Review this report to learn the latest news about the Shaker Heights City School District's Strategic Planning process.
This week, the Shaker Heights City School District worked with team members from our Strategic Planning partner, Resolute Educational Solutions , to develop a schedule of school visits over the course of the next month to better understand learning and teaching in our buildings. During these visits, Resolute will visit classrooms and speak with parents, teachers, administrators and students. Plans are also underway for additional District-wide opportunities for teachers to provide input.

We have also finalized a schedule of focus group meetings to provide parents and other community members with an opportunity to engage in the Strategic Planning process. In addition, the Resolute team plans to create a survey modeled after the focus group discussion. This survey will be distributed to the entire Shaker Heights Schools community so that the team can collect as much input as possible.

If you would like to participate in a focus group, please complete the Strategic Plan Focus Group Google Form . Focus groups will be split among three leveled groups: elementary school, middle school and high school. There also will be one community partnerships focus group. Each of the leveled groups will have three meeting times per day—9-10:30 a.m., 2-3:30 p.m. and 5:30-7 p.m.—on the following days:

  • Elementary Families focus groups (grades PreK-4) will meet on Monday, November 18
  • Intermediate & Middle School Families focus groups (grades 5-8) will meet on Tuesday, November 19
  • High School Families focus groups (grades 9-12) will meet on Wednesday, November 20
  • Community Partnerships focus group will meet on Monday, December 16 (9-10:30 a.m. and 5:30-7 p.m. only)

On the form, please rank your preferred times by first, second and third choice. Each focus group will be limited to 25 participants who represent a cross-section of our Shaker Heights Schools community. All selected applicants will be notified by email by Friday, November 15. Please complete the Strategic Plan Focus Group Google Form by Wednesday, November 13.

If you are not selected to participate in a focus group, or are unable to attend, we encourage you to complete the survey, which will be released in the coming days.
