Our Plan for Progress
Pickerington Schools has completed the development of and is actively implementing our Plan for Progress (P4P), which is a roadmap for the future of the district. The plan ensures that we are attaining greater levels of efficiency, reaching a higher level of community trust, and graduating students that are prepared for today’s world. Keep reading for more about how the plan was developed, the plan's three pillars and more.
Beginning in fall 2018, the District began working on our Plan4Progress (P4P) strategic plan by seeking community input and feedback through the spring of 2019. Then, that spring, representatives from the P4P’s three pillars (Academics, Modern Facilities and Efficient Operations) met and fleshed out the plans for these pillars. Representatives included Pickerington Schools staff, board members and members of the community.
The Plan for Progress continues to be a connection between schools and the community that reflects resident and staff input, values, and priorities. It’s a contract with our community to ensure Pickerington Schools offers a high-quality education while operating in an efficient manner.
The Plan for Progress was officially launched on Aug. 12, 2019 to District staff during Convocation.
Listening Tour Survey Results
In fall 2019, the District began a “Listening Tour” focusing on the Modern Facilities pillar, which ultimately led to the decision to place a bond issue on the ballot in November 2020 to address growth.
During the listening tour, district leaders spoke at several community/school functions in the fall of 2019 to early 2020, before the COVID-19 pandemic hit. After each presentation, a survey was disseminated digitally to attendees. Nearly 300 people responded to the survey(s), and the Listening Tour survey results showed that before the pandemic, Plan4Progress had a lot of momentum.
