Strategic Planning for Equity and Excellence

We will be presenting a session titled "Strategic Planning for Equity and Excellence" at the American Association of School Administrator's annual national conference in February, 2015. This session will detail our efforts over the past several years to institutionalize equity and the ensure that all students have the opportunity to pursue rigorous courses aligned to their passions.

Initiative Framework

The Compass Advisory Panel is a unique feature of our strategic plan. Its charges are to ensure fidelity to the plan in any new initiative that arises over the course of the plan's life, to serve as a clearinghouse of resources, and to guide evaluation of plan initiatives. Over the course of the 2012/2013 school year, it has deliberated over an "initiative framework," a guiding document that governs the implementation of initiatives by setting required steps.

Reflections on lessons and conversations ...

Not quite spring, still quite a chill in the air. Parents, community members and educators gather to discuss shared priorities for the education of children. Their children. Panelists speak. Discussion ensues. Refreshments and videos. It ends.

Was that our February 27 Town Hall meeting? In one sense, it was. It approached. It happened. It's now behind us.

Of Metaphors and Milestones

We're proud to unveil results and plan abstracts beneath each of our eight strategies. You'll now find a "Plan" section at the top of this and every page of this web site. Click on that link and you can read specifics on what we will do over the next five years. As we go, you'll be able to track our progress.

Old Missions, New Realities

As we digest feedback into our latest framework proposal, we've had to respond to a perceived tension between the time-honored mission of American public education and the realities of the 21st century. We find, however, that this isn't a tension at all.

Welcome to the Compass Blog!

Welcome to Compass, the Freehold Regional High School District's strategic planning portal. At this early date, the plan is only in its infancy; our steering committee, which represents every corner of the district's professional landscape, has developed a draft framework consisting of a mission, three goals, and seven strategies. That framework is now getting its first public airing. Feedback is rolling in.
