Strategic Plan

WAPS Strategic Plan 2022


Winona Area Public Schools is in the process of updating and revising its strategic plan.

A strategic plan clarifies the school district’s purpose and direction. It serves as the school board’s visionary road map for governing while focusing on equitable student achievement for all. It sets clear expectations for district leadership to develop and monitor continuous improvement practices. It leans on the intellect, insight and lived experience of school board members, district staff and students, local business leaders and other community members to develop a shared vision that takes into account the beliefs, values and goals of all stakeholders.

The Minnesota School Boards Association (MSBA) is providing guidance and assisting with the planning process.
