Take clear steps to monitor your district's performance and success
Strategic planning requires a deep dive into historical data, a collaborative effort between district and building-level administrators, stakeholders to assess current and historical performance, and a plan committed to equity. Hanover’s advisors direct leaders who are interested in developing a new strategic plan or refining their existing plan.
