The School District of Janesville began a five year cycle review of the strategic plan in 1999 and developed a plan titled Beyond 2000. That plan was revised twice as Beyond 2005 and Beyond 2010.
The School District of Janesville’s Strategic Planning Committee examined current programs and created a plan that would more closely align to the district’s initiatives. The new plan also provides more flexibility and is able to be reviewed, updated and changed to reflect current accomplishments and needs rather than wait for specific time periods to review the entire document. The Janesville School District Strategic Plan is now more of a living and reflective document. The Strategic Plan was adopted by the Board of Education on June 28, 2011.
In addition to updating the Strategic Plan, the committee revised the district’s mission, vision and logo to reflect the School District of Janesville’s quest for excellence. The School District of Janesville held a “logo” contest last fall and over 100 submissions were received. The winning entry was created by Parker High School Art Teacher Bob Hackbarth!
