Strategic Plan 2027

  • Welcome!

    Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools has begun an exciting new effort to create our Strategic Plan 2027. This is YOUR opportunity to continue to shape the direction of our schools for years to come! WATCH this video for an introduction to this important community project:

  • What’s included in a Strategic Plan? CHCCS will keep equity at the center of all that we do, and we will develop a data-driven culture to identify, then close, existing achievement and opportunity gaps. The last time CHCCS embarked on a strategic planning process was in 2018, for a plan that expires at the end of this calendar year.

    Equity Audit: An equity audit will inform the new strategic plan by engaging CHCCS stakeholders in a community-wide survey as well as focus groups of CHCCS stakeholders. From there, we can closely analyze school and district data, and collect district artifacts such as policies and curriculum resources. CHCCS students, parents/caregivers, and/or employees will be offered participation in the survey December 2021-January 2022.

    Other ways to get involved! Beginning in early 2022, expect several Stakeholder Engagement Sessions for the purpose of receiving feedback from a variety of interested employees, students, families and citizens who represent the community’s broader range of backgrounds and experiences. Stay tuned for dates, times and locations!

    What else? The day-to-day development of a draft Strategic Plan will be handled by CHCCS administrators, who will direct the work of what we call a “steering committee”. The steering committee will play a critical role in drafting our new strategic plan. Its members (approximately 40 individuals who represent the district, schools, and a variety of community stakeholder groups) will generously volunteer their time as valuable thought partners in determining our district’s key priorities and how to achieve them. The progress of the steering committee will be shared publicly throughout the process, up to and including when we ask the CHCCS Board of Education to approve Strategic Plan 2027 this spring.

    Goals for Strategic Plan 2027

    • Develop new Vision and Mission statements.

    • Share findings from the Equity Audit.

    • Develop a ‘portrait of a graduate’, which is often defined as the overall knowledge, skills and attributes that will prepare our students for life after high school.

    • By June 2022, unveil priorities and goals to the Board of Education and our Community.

    Stay tuned for additional information, along with ways to get involved or to just stay in the know!
