PSD launches Strategic Plan

This information was emailed to staff on Aug. 23.

At the Aug. 22 PSD Board of Education meeting, we officially launched the PSD Strategic Plan. It is designed to guide the work of the district by stating our most important areas of focus and how we address them. You can watch the team’s presentation on YouTube.

The plan offers clarity and consistency to the work we do to provide the best outcomes possible for all students. It aims to align all of us as staff and provides specifics on how that work gets done across the district at all schools and departments.  

PSD’s Strategic Plan is centered on three priorities - Literacy, Mental Health & Belonging and Graduate with Options. Over the coming months and years, we will work to bring the plan to life – showing, not telling, people how the plan comes to life in our work and student experiences – at  



Mental Health ResourcesPoster - content is in the linked PDF document.

To help us take care of ourselves and each other, mental health resources and information about services and support are available in the Mental and Behavioral Health Services and Resources web section.
