"A Community Conversation for Educational Excellence"
In the fall of 2013, the Board of Education for the CFAUSD began a landmark event and process, “A Community Conversation for Educational Excellence,” reigniting the practice of strategic planning. The Board convened a group of 140 community stakeholders to develop a deeper understanding of community expectations. Over the course of three days, participants identified the issues and trends that impact our schools and our community, distinguished the attributes and skills our graduates need to prepare them to be successful after high school, and created a picture of how the CFAUSD should prepare students for a changing tomorrow. This event served to create connections between community stakeholders and the school district and to promote a sense of shared beliefs.
The CFAUSD Board of Education places a high degree of importance on community input. After closely analyzing the themes from the “Community Conversation,” which represent our community’s expectations, the Board was able to incorporate those expectations into their governance Results and Operational Expectation Policies.
