Ravenna City Schools – Strategic Planning

 

The Ravenna School District has embarked on a journey to create a 3-5 year strategic plan to drive our work in the years going forward.  Many of you have already participated in some of the early work through data collection, focus groups and a community planning session.  When the Board of Education met in a work session in late November, they, along with other district leaders, used the information gathered through that early work to create a mission and vision statement and identified three areas to be addressed in the plan.

The mission statement is:

“Ravenna,  an inclusive learning community, embracing diversity and equipping all students for success. Each child, every day, one step at a time.”  

The vision statement is:

The Ravenna School District:

to learn,

to love,

to serve,

to succeed!

Each child, every day, one step at a time.

The three broad goal areas are 1) Learn; 2) Love/Serve; and 3) Succeed. 

The next step in the strategic planning process involves inviting community members and parents/guardians to join us in creating goal statements, desired outcomes and possible action steps or interventions.  This is really the heart and soul of strategic planning, and we are excited to work alongside you to put these goals and plans into place.

Here is a quick video to help us get the work out on our exciting new journey!  RSD Strategic Plan

If you are interested in hearing more about our Strategic Planning process, or being involved in some way contact Dr. Laura Hebert, Superintendent of the Ravenna School District at laura.hebert@ravennaschools.us.

WHAT’S HAPPENING IN OUR DISTRICT?

TEAM RAVENNA STAFF GAME CHANGER

At the roots of a strong school district are the exceptional faculty and staff and committed base of community supporters. The Ravenna School District is fortunate to have both!

To help recognize the game-changing work – inside and outside of schools – that our outstanding staff members do on a daily basis, we are implementing monthly recognition opportunities that celebrate Team Ravenna members who go above and beyond. Team Ravenna’s Game Changers are those who step up to meet the needs of our students, offer support and access to resources to colleagues, provide an extra layer of support for families outside the classroom, who are innovative and empathetic educators, and who generally make a positive and sometimes life changing difference in the lives of our students, families and their colleagues.

Each month the Superintendent chooses staff members from across the district to be recognized for outstanding service.

Congratulations to the TEAM RAVENNA STAFF GAME CHANGER AWARD WINNERS for January!!!

TEAM RAVENNA STUDENT GAME CHANGER

The Ravenna School District is pleased to announce the Student Game Changer initiative.  Similar to the Game Changer initiative for faculty and staff, we would like to recognize those students, K-12, who are consistently Responsible, Respectful and In Control.  It may be the student who tries the hardest and always turns in work.  Or the student who turns in money that was found on the floor.  Or the student who rarely talks back.  Or, it could be the student who consistently says please and thank you in the line at lunch/breakfast or always behaves on the bus.  There are so many ways our students demonstrate what it means to be a Ravenna Raven and it is our pleasure to recognize them each month!  WE ARE SO PROUD OF YOU!

Congratulations to the TEAM RAVENNA STUDENT GAME CHANGER AWARD WINNERS for January!!!
