Strategic Planning


The Tacoma School District No. 10 enables each child in the schools to achieve his or her full potential by establishing a system for strategic planning that infuses every district activity with the district’s vision, philosophical principles, and goals. The community is fully committed to the district and their students due to their full participation in the planning process.


The Board of Directors of Tacoma School District No. 10 recognizes that the goals of high-quality education for all students and increasing student achievement requires structures, processes, skills and way of thinking that must be established for the district. The Board of Directors commits the district to the process of strategic planning in order to provide a fundamental governance and management structure for the district. The planning process, budget planning, and policy development planning are part of the strategic planning cycle.


The strategic plan adopted by the district will be subject to and consistent with the constitutions and statutes of the United States and Washington state. Policies adopted by the Board and administrative practices will be measured against and consistent with the strategic plan. Planning will enable the district to respond to new developments and continually improve education within the discipline of the planning process.


Through the strategic planning process, the Board affirms its commitment to continuing and active involvement with the community, staff, and students. The district’s planning, implementation, and evaluation processes will incorporate staff and student participation and opportunities for public input.
