Madison Metropolitan School District

Strategic Framework Recalibration

To realize our district vision where every school will be a thriving school that prepares students to graduate ready for college, career, and community, we are taking an intentional and comprehensive look at our Strategic Framework. The Strategic Framework is MMSD’s roadmap to accelerate learning, close opportunity gaps, and ensure all of our scholars thrive. It details our vision, goals, core values, strategy, and specific actions we are taking as a district to raise achievement.

The district adopted the current Framework in 2018. Now, nearly five years later, through multiple pandemics, public education has shifted. It’s important MMSD incorporates lessons learned to ensure we are meeting the needs of our community, including those who have been historically excluded.

We want your feedback

We have partnered with a dynamic consultancy firm as we engage in this recalibration process. To aid in our efforts, we want to hear your perspectives about MMSD’s strategic plan, your experiences within MMSD, and better understand your needs and concerns.

Let's Talk feedback form

Some members of our community may prefer to share their thoughts with the consultancy firm rather than directly with the district. Please share your feedback via this Google form; your feedback goes to the consultancy firm, who will then share compiled data with the district.

Why now?

As stated above, our community and nation has experienced historic change. There is a need to:

  • Revisit the Strategic Framework that underpins the work of the district because outcomes have not been impacted since the Framework was originally developed.
  • Leverage what was learned during the pandemic to meet the needs of the community.
  • Clearly define the work aligned with the Strategic Framework.
  • Define and measure “success” through the perspective of stakeholders, including those who have been traditionally marginalized by the system.
  • Develop and use effective communication strategies to engage stakeholders.
  • Develop consistent ways of understanding and using the framework.
  • Understand and address current barriers to attaining the district’s goals.
  • Understand and leverage strengths within the district to attain the district’s goals.
  • Learn from experts who have successful experience designing, improving, and supporting administrators and educators in implementing inclusive, equitable, and just educational systems.
