Strategic planning in education a case study of the Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin Area Unified Scool District /

by Drivas, Aimee E.

Abstract (Summary)
Under the direction of a new Superintendent,the Chippewa Falls Area Unified School District (CFAUSD) began a strategic planning process in September, 2004. Through the review of literature, it is suggested that one reason strategic planning is important in an educational setting is to assist the organization in establishing and monitoring its goals. Without attainable goals in place, the organization does not know what it is supposed to do or how to achieve future successes. This case study provides a detailed examination and evaluation of the goals of the CFAUSD, and provides insight into the direction in which the district should continue. The researcher's goals of this case study are to determine the commitment to the strategicplanning process that the CFAUSD has made, recognize the goals of the district, identify barriers to the strategic planning process, and make recommendations that provide support to the process. The researcher will conduct a survey during this case study to assess the progress that has been made during the first two years of the strategic planning process in the CFAUSD. Information collected from the survey will help the researcher in identifyingbarriers and making recommendations to assist in overcoming identified barriers. Through this process the researcher hopes to provide the CFAUSD with information to support continued success and to provide other school districts with a successful model of strategic planning in education.
