Overview of the Strategic Planning Process

Stamford Public Schools, in collaboration with Stamford Cradle to Career, is currently hosting community workshops to discuss the goals and objectives that should be included in the SPS 2022-2027 District Strategic Plan.  The 2022-2027 SPS Strategic Plan builds on the successes of our 2017-2022 plan.  Our new plan will be informed by input from multiple sources, including:
