Strategic Plan 2020

Strategic Plan

DeSoto ISD Community Survey

The district has contracted with Engage! Learning Inc. to incorporate the DeSoto ISD community in developing the strategic plan for the next five years. Over the

next six months, outreach efforts to garner input from all segments of our community will include three Strategic Plan Summits in October along with an online survey followed with narrowed Focus Group sessions.

The plan is to hear the desired district outcomes of every interested constituent – what will DeSoto ISD look like in five years?

Engage! Learning Inc. CEO Shannon Buerk developed the Engage! Transformation Model to engage local stakeholders, businesses, and higher education professionals to design, create, and implement strategic decisions about their local education systems.ETM results in shared beliefs, a call to action, a profile of the learner, local community accountability measures, and clear goals and objectives for systems.

DeSoto ISD will be working with Engage! Learning Inc. consultants Dr. Steve Waddell, Dr. Dawson Orr and Karen Permetti to facilitate the transformation model of strategic planning. The district plans to develop and prioritize goals and action plans that meet the desires of the collective community through the year 2020.
