The Cato-Meridian Central School District is looking to others to assist mapping out its strategic plan for the next five years, the district recently announced.
The district is making a plan that includes long-term goals and smaller objectives, according to a press release on the district’s website. The district board of education held a special meeting in October centered on creating long-term goal goals.
A “core team” of 10 to 15 people will be facilitated by Cayuga-Onondaga BOCES Deputy Superintendent Jessica Docteur, according to the news release. The team is set to explore the district’s mission and vision and district data over five meetings, and will present its findings and recommendations to the board.
“I am so appreciative of the opportunity to work with (C-M superintendent) Dr. (Terry) Ward and the district on this important project,” Docteur said in the news release. “We are confident this process will be inclusive of the whole school community and I look forward to the work ahead.”
The district will also determine what number of specialized task forces it will have. The task forces will be tied to a particular area and will “operate interdependently,” according to the news release, with the core team.
