Strategic Plan


In 2016, the MSD of Lawrence Township adopted and began the implementation of a five-year Strategic Plan titled Learners Today Leaders Tomorrow. Created with input form hundreds of teachers, staff, administrators, student parents, and community members, the Plan focused on the following Strategic Areas: Student Achievement, Human Resources, Athletics & Wellness, Public Relations/Communications, Operations, Student Supports, Performing Arts, Technology, and Business & Finance. The plan rad through 2020, and COVID-19 global pandemic hit, and with school operations now in a "new normal," a new strategic planning process in underway with the support of JRK Consulting, LLC to guide the district over the next three years. 

Mission:  Through Innovation and dedication, we educate all students through graduation.

Vision:  The district of destination where excellence empowers everyone to reach their full potential.

Values:  We believe that living these values will build a culture of cooperation, collaboration, and communication within the entire school community: Achievement, Integrity, and Service.

Equity Statement: We believe that students of all races and ethnicities can meet or exceed State standards and Corporation graduation requirements when they are effectively taught and held to high expectations. The MSD of Lawrence Township defines educational equity as, "A state in which dimensions of privilege, skin color, and economic status are not predictive of, or correlated with, educational outcomes in any significant way, and where all learners are able to participate fully in quality learning experiences." - Dr. Vernita Mayfield, Executive Summary, MSDLT Equity Audit.
