Strategic Plan

Fast Forward CVSD
CVSD and the Board of Directors recognize the goal of high quality education for all students. The Board further recognizes that student achievement requires vision, structure, accountability, and advocacy. The Board commits the district to the process of strategic planning in order to provide fundamental governance and management structure for the district. Planning will enable the district to respond to new developments and continually improve education within the discipline of the planning process. Strategic planning has a strong impact on students, staff and our Central Valley community as a guide to direct the district for the next five years academically and culturally by creating multiple pathways to success.

Four Directions

Strategic Directions

The four Strategic Directions were adopted by the School Board at their April 24, 2023 meeting. The district is now working through a process to determine action steps within these four directions.

Through Equitable Systems, Staffing and Distribution of Resources, the following are the directions we want to see for CVSD in the next five years:

  • Enhanced school culture & connections
  • Recruitment & retention of high quality staff

  • Effective systems





Reimagining Systems & Structures



Ensuring systems and structures best prepare students for post-secondary pursuits and life

  • High quality learning & teaching
  • Effective use of time
