Strategic Planning Process

In the fall of 2015, Mesquite ISD embarked upon a new strategic planning process to develop a 5-year plan for the district. The process includes four phases. Phase I is currently under way and near completion.  Here are the four phases and the actions involved in each phase of the process:


Phase I

  • Board establishes beliefs, vision and categorical framework.

  • Strategic Planning Team established.

  • 2-day retreat held; mission, strategic objectives, and strategies are developed. (May 19-20, 2016)

  • Progress reported to Board of Trustees (June 2016)

Phase II

  • Action Teams formed (1 team per strategy); superintendent assigns action team leaders and team members (usually 10-15 memebers)

  • Action Teams work independently for 2 to 3 months developing action plans to support the assigned strategy.

Phase III

  • Action Team Leaders present action plans to Strategic Planning Committee at a 1-day retreat.

  • Strategic Planning Committee can accept the action plans as presented or sent back to the Action Teams for more work.

  • Once all action plans are accepted, the Board of Trustees approves the Strategic Plan.

Phase IV

  • Superintendent assigns action plans to specific years to begin implementation

  • Superintendent assigns action plan ownership to specific administrators

  • Accountability system is developed.
