GJPS Strategic Plan
The Gahanna-Jefferson Public Schools strategic plan has been an eight-month process that included surveys, listening sessions, and staff/community workgroups, in partnership with RedCon, our consulting firm. Throughout the process, four general themes emerged surrounding communication, District-wide expectations for staff and student safety and comfort. The general perception of the District that came forth in all of the feedback was a general pride in GJPS.
Once the partner feedback was themed and shared with us, it was our desire to take a closer look at our Mission and Vision Statements. Throughout this collaborative process, we have developed a new mission, vision, values and framework. This work will drive the District's path for the next 3-5 years. As this was recently approved by the Board of Education, the next step is to develop a complete framework of action steps for our District. That framework will be dynamic, not static, and will be a living document that may pivot based on the needs of our students, District or community. This will all be shown in a dashboard so that our progress can be evaluated.
