Shaping a 5-year plan: 2018-23

Welcome to the WJCCPS Strategic Planning webpage!

This page serves as a resource for members of the Williamsburg-James City County community so all can understand the importance of our strategic plan of this and how they can help ensure its goals become reality.

So where does WJCCPS stand now on the development of its five-year strategic plan (2018-2023)?

On June 19 six areas of concentration with an accompanying goal statement were presented to the School Board for consideration. Those areas of concentration were accompanied by a goal statement intended to be future-focused, yet achievable.

On July 10, the School Board approved the six areas of concentration and goal statements for the new strategic plan. The goals, along with supporting strategies and actions steps, will serve as a blueprint for the work of the division through 2023. You will note that the goal statements clearly set high expectations while also capturing community input and aspirations for WJCC students and staff.

Goal 1: Academic Achievement/College & Career Readiness

Transform teaching and learning to prepare students for success in post-secondary education and careers.

Goal 2: Educational Equity

Foster a learning environment that respects the diversity of students and provides targeted, equitable opportunities for success.

Goal 3: Communication & Engagement

Cultivate a culture of open and effective communication to inform and engage all stakeholders.

Goal 4: Safety & Security

Ensure a fully integrated approach to safety and security that encompasses both the physical environment and the social/emotional needs of students.

Goal 5: Human Capital & Positive Culture

Recruit high-quality staff and retain the division’s exemplary workforce by creating an environment where transparency and trust are the norm.

Goal 6: Organizational Efficiency & Effectiveness

Optimize division effectiveness and efficiency by establishing and strengthening processes and systems.

Now that goals have been finalized and approved by the School Board, action teams for each goal will work on developing supporting strategies and tactics. As part of a larger communications effort, this page will be updated regularly to keep stakeholders informed on the progress of the strategic plan and how they can be involved in the supporting work.
