Strategic Plan Development to Include Parent, Staff and Student Surveying

During this 2016-17 school year, the district will be updating its Strategic Plan. Much more than a document, this plan will guide how energy and resources are used in the coming years to maintain and improve achievement for all Ladue Schools students. Feedback from those most closely involved in our school community will be vital and will include input from students, parents and staff. Telephone surveying of parents and staff will take place from Sept. 10-30. Student surveying will be done only online, grades 5-12, and will be done during the course of the school day.
