Meeting # 1
What Are the Strengths, Achievements, and Challenges or opportunities of the West Milford School District?
On March 6, 2014, West Milford School District Administration, Board of Education Members, staff, parents and community members came together to initiate strategic planning. The evening topic was focused on the strengths, achievements, and challenges or opportunities of the West Milford School District. The meeting began with a welcome and introduction by Dr. James McLaughlin, CSA. The meeting was opened by board President, Mr. Dave Richards, Field Services Representatives, Robynn Meehan and Al Annunziata from NJSBA, presented an introduction to strategic planning. Dr. McLaughlin presented the current “State of the Schools.” Participants then gathered in randomly assigned groups to identify the strengths and challenges of the West Milford School District.
Small groups of participants brainstormed and shared ideas together. After discussion, each group identified their consensus points and presented those to all meeting participants.
The information that follows is a summary of the work of the small groups. As discussed with the meeting participants, all consensus points are recorded and posted on the web to share the group work during the course of the strategic planning process.
