Working Together to Help Students Succeed
Our vision: To support and inspire every child to think, to learn, to care, and to graduate prepared to be successful in a changing world.
Our mission: Educate...Every Child, Every Day
In Poudre School District, we are creating a strategic plan to guide our work that will enhance the experiences, opportunities and outcomes for all students. The strategic plan, which will be developed in partnership with the entire PSD community, will be our roadmap for the next several years and focuses on four priorities: literacy, graduating with options, mental health and belonging, and school safety.
Our data show there are great things happening in PSD but that there are not yet great outcomes for all students. With a strategic plan to help guide us, we believe we can best support learning for all by better aligning practices across our school district. Watch the Strategic Plan update at the Board of Education meeting Sept. 13, 2022.
We invite our community to guide the development of PSD’s Strategic Plan (see the DRAFT | Español Strategic Plan DRAFT | عربي Strategic Plan DRAFT ) at a series of upcoming engagement sessions. Please note that staff-specific sessions for any PSD employee to attend are held before community sessions and noted below.

Those who attend can expect to learn about data and why the priority areas were selected. Facilitators will also share a DRAFT of the Strategic Plan framework (Español Strategic Plan DRAFT | عربي Strategic Plan DRAFT) and ask participants for their feedback. Other teams of staff will use input to build upon the framework; a second iteration of the plan will be shared later this fall, and everyone will have another opportunity to share thoughts through a survey. We are currently planning to release the final Strategic Plan sometime in the first quarter of 2023.
Another option to provide feedback is to submit it online. Please click here to provide feedback to the DRAFT plan. We ask that you be as specific as possible with your suggestions. The link will take you to a Google form that asks the following questions:
1) What do you like best about the PSD Strategic Plan Framework draft?
2) What do you feel is missing from the PSD Strategic Plan Framework draft?
3) What specific suggestions do you have about each strategic priority that the district should consider?
We are excited to work with you on this plan this year. Together, we can support and guide our students toward successes in PSD and beyond.
PSD's four priorities are:
Graduating with Options
Safety and Security
