3 Strategic Plan Input Sessions Remain


Hundreds of sticky notes decorated the walls of Tuscarora High School’s auditorium on Monday, April 18, as it hosted one of two Loudoun County Public Schools’ Strategic Planning Town Halls.

Thirty-eight stakeholders attended the meeting at Tuscarora, while 14 attended a similar session at Briar Woods High School. The sessions are designed to engage the public to provide written and verbal feedback, as well as small-group discussions, concerning issues affecting LCPS students. All of the feedback will be incorporated into a new LCPS strategic plan, which is scheduled to be adopted by the School Board on June 28.  

Tonight, Tuesday, April 19, the public is invited to attend sessions in the auditoriums of both Dominion and Stone Bridge high schools from 7 to 9 p.m. A Spanish interpreter will be available at the  Dominion High School session.

On Thursday, April 21, a session will be conducted for the public to attend in the LCPS Administrative Offices, 21000 Education Court, Ashburn, from 1 to 3 p.m.

These meetings will be facilitated by RTI International with support from LCPS staff and School Board members. Tuscarora’s session was attended by School Board members John Beatty (Catoctin District) and Tom Marshall (Leesburg District), as well as LCPS Assistant Superintendent Dr. Ashley Ellis. School Board Chair Jeff Morse (Dulles District) attended the Briar Woods event. 

Mike Martin of RTI, who facilitated Tuesday’s session at Tuscarora, said the strategic planning process is designed to make sure only those issues that are most important to stakeholders make it into the final plan. “If you have 70 priorities, you don’t have any priorities.”

The information gathered at this week’s sessions will augment the 13,125 poll results, including 4,287 personal responses, collected by RTI.
