Information : Six-Year Plan
Stafford County Public Schools' Six-Year Plan outlines the goals and objectives for the long-range instructional planning to deliver contemporary education, enable students to reach higher achievement levels, and maintain its lead over other K-12 education systems. The Six-Year Plan is developed by a committee drawing on knowledge and experience of its members who are from within the Stafford County Public Schools.
The Plan is coupled with the Education 2000 and Beyond Task Force that is commissioned by the Stafford County School Board to develop a strategy to guide the school system into the 21st century. The Six- Year Planning committee annually updates the plan in collaboration with School Board members, teachers, administrators, community members, and the Education 2000 and Beyond Task Force. The committee eliminates completed objectives or those no longer needed, revitalizes others, and adds new ones. The plan includes goals, objectives, action strategies, completion dates, and who is responsible for implementation.
Important factors addressed in the Six-Year Plan include cultural and ethnic diversity, social issues of the country, subject matter of the curriculum, challenging the high achiever, and the information explosion. Major components of the goals and objectives of the plan that address the contemporary needs of education include new emphasis on technology as a subject and a classroom tool, cooperative learning methods, developing thinking skills, expanding communication networking opportunities, addressing the global economy, providing for a multi-cultural education, expanding instructional assessment practices, continuing staff development, and developing an appropriate monitoring system with metrics to assess the performance of the plan.
The Six-Year Plan, coupled with the Education 2000 and Beyond Task Force, provides the framework to shape and form a sound education process to keep pace with county and nationwide changes.
