2014-15 goals developed in collaboration with the Board of Education

I would like to begin my column this week by thanking all of you for a great start to the school year.  In the spirit of collaboration, we will be doing several short surveys this year to gauge the opinion of our community regarding a wide variety of topics. Recently we conducted a back to school survey. Parents were asked if the school year had gotten off to a good start for their student(s) and I’m happy to report 97% of more than 1,500 respondents answered their school year is off to a good start.

We also asked for feedback about what we need to improve in our back to school procedures and processes. Great organizations, whether business or school district, never shy away from continuous improvement and it is one of the two guiding principles for Dublin City Schools. In a future column, you’ll be hearing from our Director of Continuous Improvement Annette Morud. She will be sharing some details about her position and what continuous improvement on the business side of our District can mean to our stakeholders.

Our other guiding principle is offering our students a well-rounded educational experience. 

These two concepts are part of what we consider to be the Dublin difference. The Dublin difference is a well-rounded education that develops not only a child’s mind, but also a child’s heart. The Dublin difference is also a commitment by our faculty to world-class instruction, making sure all of our students are college and career ready.

With the backdrop of our guiding principles in mind, I’d like to share the District’s 2014-15 goals I developed collaboratively with our Board of Education.

Dublin City Schools works everyday to provide our students with world-class instruction and a well-rounded education and to continuously improve in everything we do. It is our goal to align our daily work around these concepts in order to create the Dublin difference.

During the 2014-15 school year, the Dublin City Schools Board of Education will explore four essential areas of our organization. The inquiries will be in the areas of gifted education, the middle school schedule, facility overcrowding, and updating our staffing plan.

A member of the Board will serve on each of the four task forces and Board President Lynn May will preside over these committees and communicate with the Board members serving with Central Office administrators, staff, and community members.

These four areas are critical to our District’s mission and we are going to be asking ourselves a series of essential questions.

• What might a world-class gifted education program look like in Dublin City Schools?

• What should a middle school day look like in an ideal world?

• What is the most fiscally prudent plan to address our student housing needs while providing them with well-rounded experiences?

• How can we best allocate our staff to ensure all our students receive world-class instruction, every day?

At the work session Board meeting (the second meeting of each month), Board members assigned to the four committees will work with Central Office administrators and others to study, examine, and where necessary, improve processes and outcomes in these four areas of our organization. Board members will then report out on the progress of the committees at the first Board meeting of each month.

In closing, I thank you for your ongoing support of our students and our expert teaching staff. I look forward to hearing about what the Dublin difference means to you personally. Please share it with me on Twitter @toddhoadley and #theDublinDifference.
