Outlines goals and objectives, with strategies for how to achieve them.Battle Ground Public Schools leadership, staff, families and the community have developed a new mission, vision and strategic plan that aligns with its educational priorities and reflects the community’s vision for its schools.

In an effort to define the district’s focus, district staff worked together to develop a mission statement and define two educational priorities, called coherence goals. These priorities encompass high-quality instruction and strong social and emotional skills.

In the 2021-22 school year, district leadership sought input from families and the community and launched the Citizens Advisory Committee to refine the goals and add a third.

The resulting plan is a reflection of community priorities. In Battle Ground Public Schools we focus on high-quality instructional techniques that benefit each student, provide a safe and caring environment and partner with parents and our community. This is wrapped into three goals. Within each goal are strategies that the district will use to achieve objectives.
