Strategic Planning - #Proud2bMPS
Strategic planning is Millard's method to continuously create systems to serve extraordinary purpose.  Since the 1989-1990 school year, Millard has used Strategic Planning and Site Planning as the mechanism for school improvement. Strategic Planning has been the driving force in our district for the last 27 years.   Millard has seen major initiatives change how we do business in MPS.  If you have ever wondered how certain things in Millard have come about, you can bet there was a connection to the Strategic Plan.  Click here to see more information about our current Strategic Plan.


Millard Public Schools plans to rewrite our Strategic Plan on August 2-4, 2017.  Unfortunately each and every stakeholder will not be able to serve on this committee.  We have been busy securing input about the strengths and weaknesses from stakeholders including various Superintendent Advisory Groups, Building Staff Development Facilitators, Administrators and District Teacher Leaders.  We believe “our greatest resource is people”.  As a valued stakeholder of MPS, we invite you to give your input on the strengths and weaknesses of Millard Public Schools.  Please click on this LINK and share your comments by May 31.


Look for announcements early next school year on how YOU can be involved with district action teams and a be part of defining a new chapter of Millard Public Schools.
