The purpose of strategic or long-range planning will be to assist the Orange BOE in establishing priorities for spending, professional development, designing new programs, for measuring and communicating successes, and setting other goals which will better serve the needs of students, in particular, and our educational community, as a whole. An effective strategic plan will be specific, but also flexible and practical. It will serve as a guideline for the BOE and the administrative team in implementing new programs, evaluating how these programs are doing, and then making adjustments when necessary. An effective strategic plan will reflect our thoughts, feelings, ideals, and dreams as a school community … in conjunction with our mission, values, and beliefs which, although they appear throughout this webpage, need updating, as well. The development of our plan will require surveying our communities, engaging in much analysis and discussion.
The district has created a COVID 19 Dashboard that will be updated every Friday. This will include the most current number of staff and students who are quarantining due to being COVID positive or having had a close contact. This data is compiled by information families and staff share with our school nurses.
Please remember to contact your school nurse if:
- Your child is having key COVID-19 symptoms,
- Tested positive, or
- was exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19
