Championed by Superintendent Ghysels and facilitated by Assistant Superintendent Burmeister and school principals, MPCSD will be engaged in a four-month long process from August to December to identify our “Strategic Directions” for the next six years. The process began with an interactive “working session” of the Board and District Leadership Team last Wednesday, August 26. The Strategic Directions will become the foundation of the district’s Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) -- the new accountability plan required by the state. Joining the two affords us a great opportunity to streamline and focus districtwide. We are committed to receiving an abundance of input and having the results reflect the priorities of our stakeholder groups. As such, we are advertising the following opportunities for parents to provide their valuable input. If you have any questions about the Strategic Directions process, please don’t hesitate to email Superintendent Ghysels and/or Assistant Superintendent Burmeister.
