Please join us at one of the two online community meetings on Thursday, Oct. 22, at 7 p.m. or Tuesday, Nov. 17, at 4:30 p.m. Please pre-register to receive a link for the online meeting. 

If you are not able to attend one of the live online meetings, you can access a recording of the presentation and submit your feedback online.

We hope you like the draft plan. Our team worked very hard to incorporate all the feedback you provided and to create something that will lead us in the right direction for the next five years with a focus on equity, expanding school offerings, and better engaging our students, families and community.

Strategic Plan Updates

Due to the shelter in place order and the ban on large gatherings, we have moved the next phase of our strategic planning process online. Your voice is as important as ever as we prioritize the feedback submitted by families, students, staff and the greater community.

As of February 26, we have received 846 comments from 424 people on our 2020-25 strategic plan. This includes attendees at the January 14 and February 10 community engagement sessions, as well as people who have completed the online form. We have grouped the comments into themes and summarized them here. 

The first two large-scale community engagement sessions focused on what residents, families and other stakeholders think about Richfield Public Schools and where they want to see the district head over the next five years. If you missed the meetings, you can still submit your feedback online.
