BRUNSWICK SCHOOL DEPARTMENT seeks widespread stakeholder input into the development of our new Strategic Framework. A workgroup, including school board members, administrators, parents and community members have been working with consulting company, Good Group Decisions, to develop and implement a plan for gathering and analyzing stakeholder input into the development of our new Strategic Framework!
Beginning this week, we will be hosting community focus groups – open to all Brunswick residents and school employees – to allow people a variety of opportunities to offer thoughts, opinions, ideas, concerns, and hopes …
Please help us by providing your voice and your ideas for the vision of the future of our schools! This is an exciting opportunity for all of us to work together and create what we, in Brunswick want for our future and for the future of our children. Collectively we can make great things happen!
Bring us your voice, your vision, your ideas, your creativity, your aspirations.
Everyone is welcome, we want our schools to be the heart of our community and together we will achieve this goal!
Our strategic planning motto is: “Brunswick Believes….”! Beginning this week, we will have the first of three questions printed in the paper, the second and third questions will appear in the paper during the consecutive weeks. Start thinking about your responses now!
Week 1) What do you most value about Brunswick public schools?
Week 2) How can Brunswick Schools better serve our students? Our Community?
Week 3) What would you like Brunswick Schools to be known for in 5-10 years?
