Strategic Plan Input Needed
Bristol Tennessee City Schools is embarking on the next five-year phase of strategic planning. A strategic planning steering team has been established and requests your input as a stakeholder (parent, staff member, student, or community member). The school system’s mission is to inspire academic excellence in a challenging, engaging learning environment that graduates responsible citizens prepared for success in our global community. Your feedback is essential to help us best achieve our mission as we establish up-to-date objectives that will set the direction of our focus for the next five years. The deadline to complete the survey is September 8. To view the current strategic plan, go to http://strategicplan.btcs.org/default.aspx. Thank you for your valuable feedback!
