Superintendent's Message

Dear Shorewood Parents and Families,

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year!

The Shorewood School District has announced its Strategic Plan for 2017-2018, which has been mailed out to all Shorewood families and village residents.

The 2017-2018 Strategic Plan represents the second year of our work toward our vision for 2025. Our vision grew out of the Shorewood Schools Summit that occurred in February of 2016 and engaged over 100 community members, parents, teachers and students. This diverse group was charged with developing a picture of what the school district would look like in the future. The result was our vision for 2025: β€œThe Shorewood School District will foster a positive educational experience that is responsive to the diverse needs and aspirations of all students.”

Summit participants prioritized five themes they felt were important to work on as we strive to achieve our vision. The five themes were: 1) Authentic Experiential Learning, 2) Support for the Whole Child, 3) Modernize and Maintain Historic Buildings, 4) Diversity in Teacher Support, Recruitment, and Development and 5) Funding Strategies.

This document outlines strategies we will work on over the 2017-2018 school year in each of the themes. We also reference successes that occurred during the 2016-2017 school year. Thanks to all the District staff, Board members, parents, students and community members for your continued commitment to our schools.

Bryan Davis, Shorewood Schools Superintendent
