Our strategic plan is research-based and has been developed with input from community stakeholders. Eagle County School District continues to make progress in developing implementing and evolving our strategic plan. Processes and practices have been established and budgeting has been prioritized against strategic goals.
This plan is a starting point from which we make continuous decisions in response to conditions. No amount of written direction can encompass the highly complicated process of education children. We rely on our staff and their creative, conceptual, and rational abilities, along with the direct application of their education, experience, and judgment to activate this plan. We trust teachers to motivate and reach each student.
For lasting improvement across our district, each school must identify its unique culture along with the necessary changes in practice to provide the most significant impact for their students, parents, and staff. The School Improvement Plan serves as the annual guide for schools to achieve their goals. The district must respect and support those plans to provide an environment for success.
With our diverse student population, it is essential to provide culturally inclusive, respectful, and supportive learning environments. By enhancing our cultural competence and connecting with the hearts of our students first, we believe their minds will be more open to engaging in the academic work necessary to graduate with global-ready skills.
For the next three years, we are focused on Wellness, Equity, and Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS).
We teach the children of Eagle County to have creative and active minds, compassion for others, enthusiasm for lifelong learning, and the courage to act on their dreams.
• Engaged Learners
• Inspired Professionals
• A Commitment to Equity
• A Sense of Adventure
• A Caring Community
Eagle County School District successfully kept schools open for in-person instruction throughout the 2020-21 school year. We have continued to make great strides forward in mental health support with our various local partners. We have increased our preschool capacities and have invested in our students by improving the curriculum adoption process and seeing the extension of the 5B Mill Levy in perpetuity. Our efforts continue in exploring creative outlets to secure affordable housing for our employees while also investing in additional staffing and increased wages.
Weather changes. Trails close. This plan is a starting point from which we make continuous decisions in response to conditions. Just like teaching a lesson plan, this plan is not a static mandate.
