Our Strategic Plan, EdVantage

The Strategic Plan for the Manatee County School District was developed by 36 members of the Strategic Planning Core Team and over 100 members of the Action Teams and Measurement Team with representation from the community and from our school district. The District is in its sixth year of implementation.  The plan was updated to include a sixth strategy, Technology & Learning, which was Board approved on July 26, 2010.

The Plan, called EdVantage is comprised of a mission statement, core values, strategic objectives, six strategies, and a Measurement Plan (Measurement Rubric).
