Strategic Plan Process

Milford School District engaged a diverse group of students, staff, caregivers, and community members to develop the next strategic plan, Charting a Course to Excellence. The Strategic Plan Steering Committee convened multiple times over a 6 month period to guide the key elements of the plan: Portrait of a Buccaneer, Core Beliefs, Vision, Mission, and Priorities. Each of the elements contributes to setting the stage for the next several years of focus in Milford Schools. Additionally, the strategic planning process elevated stakeholder voices through a survey completed by over 1,000 individuals and numerous focus groups all designed to gather input from all stakeholders. Charting a Course to Excellence was presented and approved to the Board on May 23, 2023.
