Annual Report on Our Call to Action: Strategic Plan for the Montgomery County Public Schools
Montgomery County Public Schools
In June 2003 the Board of Education adopted "Our Call to Action, Pursuit of Excellence," the second edition of the school system's strategic plan. This update of the original November 1999 Our Call to Action, while remaining focused on the core mission of providing every student with a high-quality, world-class education, strengthened the strategies, initiatives, and implementation schedules of key reforms. The accountability framework established by the strategic plan, provides a framework for measuring the performance of academic and operational reforms, and identifying opportunities for improvements. The first edition of the "Annual Report on Our Call to Action: Pursuit of Excellence" represents a major step in the school system's accountability to stakeholders. The report provides a comprehensive accounting of the school system's performance on the established milestones and data points of the strategic plan. The successful implementation of strategic reform initiatives by our high-quality workforce has yielded strong student achievement gains during a tremendous period of progress in the Montgomery County Public Schools. The academic progress is a direct result of the reform initiatives that began in 1999 and became the foundation of the school system's strategic plan. The plan's four goals align with the Board of Education's four core governance policies and provide a framework for monitoring the ongoing reform and improvement efforts. This report details the progress toward meeting the identified milestones within each of the four goal areas.
