  • January 31 Orientation Workshop

    On Monday, January 31, the InspireLT Strategic Plan Team participated in a virtual Kick-Off meeting. Superintendent Dr. Brian Waterman welcomed all those in attendance and thanked everyone for their time and commitment to the Strategic Planning process. The Strategic Planning process was explained, along with team members’ roles and responsibilities, and the purpose of future meetings. The team participated in two breakout sessions to discuss and identify key concepts and items that they feel should assist the team as it works together to set a new direction for the district.

  • February 24 Data Retreat

    On Thursday, February 24, the InspireLT Strategic Plan Team participated in a full-day Data Retreat. The team was presented with a variety of information and data in an effort to describe our current reality. The team then, in turn, utilized this data to collaboratively develop a draft list of our school community’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats (SWOT). During the week of March 7, our community will have the opportunity to provide input into the draft SWOT so that we can ensure we are accurately representing our strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats. The final version of the SWOT will be used by the InspireLT team on March 17 to begin drafting a vision for our future.

  • March 17 Vision Retreat

    On Thursday, March 17, the InspireLT Strategic Plan Team participated in a full-day Vision Retreat and turned their attention to the question, “Where do we want to be?” The team examined a variety of resources to help determine what needs to change to better meet the needs of all high school students and their families for the future. During the Vision Retreat, the team revisited LT's mission, mottos, values, and beliefs. They also began to identify the successful characteristics of our graduates, our adults, and our system as a whole. During the week of April 4, our community will have the opportunity to provide input into the draft mission, vision, and graduate, adult and system portraits so that we can ensure we are accurately representing our core values. The final version of the vision items will be used by the InspireLT team on April 19.

    Vision Retreat Findings

  • April 19 Setting Direction Retreat

    At the InspireLT Setting Direction Retreat on Tuesday, April 19, the Team discussed the essential question, "How will we get from where we are to where we want to be?" At the meeting, students and staff examined feedback on the Preferred Future Statement from the Vision Retreat and drafted long-range goals and aligned strategies.. The InspireLT Team then identified and prioritized critical goals and strategies to move the district closer to achieving its mission and vision, resulting in a Strategic Plan Draft. This first look at the new, evolving strategic plan will be shared with stakeholder groups to solicit feedback. The feedback will then be reviewed at the final meeting on May 11.
