Dear Colleagues and Community Members,

We would like to thank everyone who participated in revising our Strategic Plan for 2018-2023. Whether you were a student, community member, parent, faculty, adminstrator, or a board member, your input was valued, significant, and essential in making this strategic plan a reality for the Verona Public Schools. We are proud that we were able to partner with you and create a blueprint that will help guide our community over the next five years.

Our Strategic Plan for 2018-2023 was presented to our Board of Education in June. The members of the Board praised the Steering Committee and the six Action Team committees for such insightful contributions. Overall, we had 30 members on our Steering Committee and over 75 members that comprised our six Action Teams. We are pleased to share the strategic plan has a new mission statement as well as updated strategies, results, and action steps that will serve as the compass for our district over the next five years.
