Following the Board’s self-evaluation in 2022, role modeling a culture of reflection and improvement, paralleling the Superintendent evaluation and annual goals, and tied to our Strategic Plan, the ASD Board proposes the following goals for 2022-23.
Leadership, Mission, Vision and Goals
As part of the regular review of the Mission, Vision and Goals of the District, the Board will establish an “Innovation Committee”1 composed of a representative group of district stakeholders to brainstorm, think “outside the box”, and propose creative ideas for future consideration.
By Dec 2022, the Board will establish leadership, structure and overall goals of this Board committee.
By early 2023, the Board will have engaged district stakeholders in the Innovation Committee.
By 6/30/23, the Board director liaison to the Innovation Committee will update the Board on the committee’s progress to date and make recommendations for next steps.
The Board will streamline its evaluation process and procedures for the next Superintendent evaluation cycle.
Before deployment in early 2023, the Board will revise the various employee surveys for brevity and succinctness.
The Board will complete the evaluation process in a timely manner.
The Board will increase visibility and engagement with the ASD community.
Throughout 2022-23, the Board will seek to increase community engagement opportunities (forums, increased committee participation, coffee with a Board member, etc.)
The Board will utilize social and traditional media to increase communication to the Ashland community (videos on the website, building relationships with local media, increasing Facebook usage, etc.)
