Building the 4YP – A Work in Progress!

Greg Luterbach - Superintendent of Schools - Throughout the fall we highlighted the co-construction of our new Four Year Plan, Innovators 2023 by Design, on this 2023byDesign.com site. As you have seen, we have provided opportunities for everyone to provide feedback on the draft goals, outcomes and narrative. A number of changes were made to those drafts based on your feedback.

In late November and early December, a group of parents, teachers, school leaders and Ed Centre staff gathered as part of a Superintendent Working Committee (SWC). We spent two days discussing how we could bring the themes from your ideas to life. We boiled down the conversations into a set of interconnected design principles that can help everyone move forward the great work already underway in RVS. We also identified potential key strategies for Year One that will build synergy, support and engage in a strategic approach to advancing the plan’s goals and outcomes.

On Jan. 15, 2019, a communiqué providing an overview of the work undertaken by the SWC will be accessible here on 2023byDesign.com. A new video highlighting the design principles also will be available on YouTube.

We want, and need, your feedback on this latest iteration of the plan! Please take the time to complete the new poll (Design Principles) and activity (I CAN Learn…) that will launch Jan. 15, 2019. This is a great opportunity to reflect on the revised plan and provide feedback that will be taken into consideration during our next revision day, Feb. 12, 2019.

We are still on track to bring the Draft Four Year Plan to the Board of Trustees in March 2019.
