Strategic Planning Process

The original planning team met in Nome in the spring of 2005 under the guidance of Dr. Bruce Johnson from the Association of Alaska School Boards. While in Nome the group reviewed the previous Strategic Plan, reviewed and revised the District Mission, strategies and objectives, and then provided the action teams with additional direction. Action team leaders were selected and trained and teams met face-to-face and via telephone and videoconferencing. The original planning team met again in Unalakleet on January 19-20, 2006 to finish the Strategic Plan. The plan was presented to and approved by the BSSD Regional School Board in February 2006.
