The Destination 2026 Process

Beginning in January 2014, a team of school district teachers, staff and administrators convened to begin the Destination 2026 work. Subgroups were also established to conduct research in five critical areas:

  1. Teaching & Learning – to explore what and how we’ll teach, courses we’ll offer and instructional programs we’ll use.
  2. Professional Development – to explore the skills our teachers and administrators will need, strategies they’ll learn and how they’ll collaborate.
  3. Assessments & Intervention – to explore the benchmarks we’ll track, metrics we’ll use to gauge success and data we’ll monitor to drive instruction.
  4. Technology – to explore how we’ll use our devices, how they will transform learning and how we’ll maintain and expand our infrastructure.
  5. Extended Learning – to explore opportunities we’ll offer for nontraditional learning, programs for learning after school hours and experiences for students in the summer.

This work will evolve through four phases over an 18-month period:

Phase I (January 2014-May 2014): Establish the questions to be answered, the outcomes desired (i.e., characteristics of effective teaching and characteristics of engaged students), and the research to be completed (i.e., books to read, site visits).

Phase II (June 2014-December 2014): Conduct research and site visits; compile and analyze findings.

Phase III (January 2015-April 2015): Develop 8-10 concise recommendations (and supporting research) for implementation consideration. Identify recommendations for short-term (within 3 years) and long-term (4 years and beyond) implementation.

Phase IV (May 2015-June 2015): Compile and release final Destination 2026 report. The superintendent and members of the administrative team will review and consider recommendations in the development of the school district action plan.
