Strategic Plan

Beginning in the 2022-2023 school year, systemic goal areas were established by new superintendent, Dr. Dyson, of Frederick County Public Schools (FCPS). These goal areas—organizational culture of achievement, operational excellence, safety and wellbeing, stakeholder engagement, and student and staff experience—are aligned to the existing five FCPS strategic goals (see below). Furthermore, for each of the goal areas, key performance indicators (KPIs) were established. KPIs are used to measure progress on specific outcomes over a period of time (e.g., increasing student performance on assessments). These general performance targets (KPIs) were established in collaboration with the Board of Education, Superintendent, FCPS staff, and the community. Throughout the school year, staff will be collaborating on presenting data on the progress of each of these performance targets.
