The SPPS Achieves strategic plan set in motion a bold plan to ensure all students and families have access to welcoming, quality schools and programs.
In support of the strategic plan, Envision SPPS is a data-driven process to create a plan that aligns programs with school facilities to ensure families have access to viable programs. (“Viable” is defined as school programs that
are academically well rounded, equitable, cost effective, in demand by families, and provide skills aligned to post-secondary education and employment opportunities.)
Envision SPPS launched in February 2020 with a set of preliminary Planning Workgroups tasked with reviewing key data, including years of statements from families about what they would like to see done to improve our programs. Final recommendations would be phased in starting school year 2021-22 with full implementation completed during the 2022-23 school year.
