Invitation for Community Engagement Meeting to present Strategic Plan

Centura Logo NEW.cdrOn behalf of the Centura Public Schools, stakeholders of the district are invited to participate in an upcoming Community Discussion designed to share information and obtain additional feedback.

Over the past school year, the board and administration embarked upon a community engagement and strategic planning process.  Many Centura patrons participated in this process and we are grateful for the community response.

The purpose and focus of Strategic Planning is to work collaboratively with the community to help formulate a vision of the future, and identify goals and strategies necessary to move the district forward to meet the challenges of the 21st century.

District move into the future. We are reaching out to the leaders, parents and patrons within our communities and invite you to attend and participate in the next Community Discussion meeting on Thursday, November 3 at 6:30 p.m. in the Centura High School gymnasium.
