MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - The Lauderdale County School Superintendent says a new plan of action will be put in place to improve the district's performance.
Determining the future of the Lauderdale County School District. A new strategic plan is in the works for the district’s 12 schools.
“We feel it's prudent that any organization that wants to grow and get better has to have a plan. We want to develop that plan with our community and stakeholders so we can continue to improve,” Cain says.
This is a first for the district. The new approach to teaching children in Lauderdale County begins with receiving feedback from those who have a vested interest.
“We will initially release a survey to the public. We’ve asked them to participate in through paper copy or put it out online through social media,” Cain says.
Dr. Cain says the surveys accompanied with stakeholder meetings will help shape the changes made in the district. Once a certain list of improvements or goals are compiled, the implementation begins.
“Our action teams will then develop and look at those goals and the action steps we will put in place to make those goals a reality,” Cain says.
Once the goals and plan are put in place it will be continuously monitored.
“It’s a living document. Even after the completion of the plan, it’s something we will evaluate annually. We will go back and see how we are progressing. If we need to make adjustments along the way, we will,” Cain says.
They hope to have a concrete plan of action in place by August or September.
