Inclusive Process

Walla Walla Public Schools launched an inclusive strategic planning process during the 2016-2017 school year involving multiple layers of dialogue with students, staff, parents and community members. Four student-centered goals surfaced during this collaboration: high quality instruction, aligned and coherent systems, social and emotional needs, and a safe and engaging environment. The Strategic Planning process also resulted in new Vision, Mission and Beliefs statements centered on student success. Walla Walla Public Schools would like to thank community stakeholders, parents, students and staff for their input, reflection and support in the development of this plan.

Improving Achievement

To ensure high levels of learning for all students, the Board of Directors established lofty expectations for increased student performance as identified in the district’s new 2017-2022 Strategic Plan. Bold and courageous student success indicators were established to guide district actions and investments to meet community expectations for improved academic achievement. This renewed focus on performance and skill development will ensure Walla Walla students graduate prepared for today’s competitive world, whether college or career bound. This new and ambitious strategic plan affirms the community’s collective expectation for a world-class education for all students.
