I hope this email finds you and your families well.
In February 2018, the Cranford Public School District successfully launched its 2018-2023 Strategic Planning initiative. As described in my introductory communication on January 16, 2018, the purpose of Strategic Planning is to come together as a community to 1) examine and identify current strengths, challenges, and opportunities; 2) determine a desired future for our District; and 3) formulate goals and actionable steps to achieve our goals and, ultimately, realize our vision.
To this end, it is with utmost pleasure and appreciation that I provide the following progress report detailing all activities and achievements, to date (once you review the information below, I respectfully encourage you to complete the online Strategic Planning Progress Feedback Survey):
During each of the aforementioned work sessions, our Strategic Planning Council members worked most diligently, collegially and enthusiastically to draft the recommended core values/beliefs, mission, vision, and goal statements upon which we will build the strategic action plans that will guide our targeted efforts throughout the next five years. A summary of these draft products can be accessed and reviewed at: Draft Strategic Planning Products
Important, on behalf of the CPSD Strategic Planning Council, I respectfully encourage you to complete the online Strategic Planning Progress Feedback Survey. This survey will be available through Friday, May 4, 2018. As always, your feedback is most valued and appreciated.
Essential to the success of our Strategic Planning process is the comprehensive representation and full participation of the Cranford Public School District community - parents/guardians, teachers, administrators, students, and business and community members. Evidently, our community has certainly united in support of this most important endeavor.
In closing, I would like to take advantage of this opportunity to express my most heartfelt gratitude to each of our Strategic Planning Steering Committee and Council members. Please know how very grateful I am for the personal sacrifice and hard work each has put forth on behalf of the CPSD community. Be very proud of your collaborative efforts and achievements.
All my very best,
Dr. Scott Rubin
Superintendent of Schools
Mrs. Michele Cammarata
Executive Asst. to the Superintendent of Schools
