Strategic plan serves as road map for students' success

Schalmont Advance 2018 logoIt's easier to reach a destination when you have a road map to get you there. For schools, that destination is having all students graduate ready for college and careers.

For Schalmont, that road map is an ambitious five year strategic plan, Schalmont Advance 2018.

The plan targets five strategic goals related to the areas of academics, professional development, family/community partnerships, safety, and business and support operations.

It was approved by the Schalmont Board of Education in March 2014, and is continuously updated based on implementation.

The plan captures the mission of the school district, identifying the current state and building from there. It also identifies objectives and strategies needed for enhancing and strengthening the district's existing programs and services. Learn more

Districtwide Committees

Technology Committee

  • School officials established an Ad Hoc Technology Committee during the 2013-14 school year in an effort to review the district's current technology plan, research requirements to support the next generation assessments and frameworks for instructional technology for the 21st century, as well as revise/create a new information communication and technology plan that aligns to these educational shifts within a global society.

Safety Subcommittee on School Climate and Culture

  • Creating a safer and healthier school community is the goal of the districtwide Safety Subcommittee on School Climate and Culture, which was established in December 2013 to take a closer look at all aspects of the school community to determine whether enough is being done to address the social and emotional needs of all students. The 30-member group of employees, parents, students, and community members have been working under the guidance of Capital Region BOCES CAPIT Prevention Coordinator Cathy Welling to develop a plan moving forward.
