Strategic Plan

The Vestaburg Board of Education has just completed its Strategic Planning initiative.  This document contains the 2018-2023 Vestaburg Community School Strategic Plan. We’re excited about this plan and the possibilities it provides for our students, parents/guardians, and community to improve education at Vestaburg Community School.


The process used to create this plan relied heavily upon input from the various stakeholders in our school and community. Community, parent/guardian, staff and student forums, as well as an electronic survey, resulted in 217 people providing input for the planning process. A Strategic Planning Team of 21 community members, parents/guardians, staff, and students participated in an all-day planning retreat on February 3, 2018.  

Throughout the planning process, the community expressed high expectations for Vestaburg Community School becoming a world-class school district and with all students graduating from high school. Even though some of the goals are extremely high, they reflect the strong desire to embrace significant change and dramatically improve the school system. The goals were broken into 5 areas and are as follows:


The Vision of Vestaburg Community School is to empower all to create and achieve their goals and dreams.
