The West Bloomfield School District has undertaken a collaborative process that directly ties its strategic visioning with short and long term planning. Due to continued significant reductions in funding from the State of Michigan, public schools are faced with the major challenge of preserving educational excellence during difficult economic times.
To maintain our reputation as a leading school district, we sought input to implement the many ideas put forward by the community during Coffee Talks, Superintendent’s Parent Communication Network and West Bloomfield Board of Education meetings. Parents, teachers, staff, students and community members were all invited to serve on committees to review and create program and budget recommendations to continue the evolution of our school district’s Strategic Visioning Plan.
Committees included Curricula and Instructional, Building and Enrollment Planning, Athletics and Co-Curriculars, District Operations, Human Resources, Bus Transportation, Community Education Programs, Revenue Enhancements, and Communication. Many recommendations that were a result of these meetings have been put into place during this ongoing process. We continue to monitor and review the process as we progress through the 2015-16 school year.
