Union Co. Public Schools’ 3-Year Strategic Plan Presented at Board Meeting

Union County Public Schools’ Superintendent Patricia Sheffer presented a new three-year Strategic Plan for the school district at last night’s school board meeting held at the Culinary Arts Building on the campus of the Earle C. Clements Job Corps.

Superintendent Sheffer stated the strategic plan came from feedback of conversations with community members, like Union County Economic Development goals for education as a business, as well as school staff. In addition, she said the District Leadership Team attended a Strategic Planning Process through the Kentucky Association of School Administrators and started looking at the school district’s mission.

She added that all of this is based on their strong beliefs.

Ms. Sheffer then presented the district’s strategic plan objectives broken down into three goals: Life Success, Career Success and College Success.

She explained the first goal of Life Success is to inspire students to become well-rounded individuals and with three objectives: Connectedness, Productivity and Adaptability.

She stated the second goal is Career Success, to inspire students to become quality employees with the objectives of Transitions at all levels, Extended Learning and Multiple Pathways.

And the third goal is College Success, to inspire students for college success through personalized learning through Advanced Learning, Project Based Learning and Lead Learning.

Overall, Ms. Sheffer added they want to remove all barriers and obstacles for their students to be effective leaders.

Board members unanimously approved the plan.
