Strategic Plan Overview
There are several parts to the SPPS Achieves Strategic Plan. Learn more about each of the sections and how they work together to help improve student achievement.
The SPPS Achieves Strategic Plan is shaped through six long-term student outcomes. These are key areas of achievement we want to improve in order to raise the performance of all students.
|Decrease disparities in achievement based on race, ethnicity, culture and identity||
Increase achievement of English Learners

Strategic focus areas are what we need to do as a district to bring about positive change in student achievement. The strategic focus areas include:
|Positive School and District Culture||
Effective and Culturally Relevant Instruction
Program Evaluation and Resource Allocation
|College and Career Paths||Family and Community Engagement|
|Create a shared sense of community to build trust and collaboration within and outside our schools.||
Provide instruction in ways that are relevant to each student so they stay engaged and feel valued in the classroom.
|Evaluate effectiveness of current programs and make informed adjustments and investments.||
Expose students to more college and career opportunities, including the ability to earn college credit, certifications and internships.
Ensure equitable access to families so they can navigate the school system and the wealth of programs it offers.
Objectives are the decisions made about how to address the strategic focus areas.
