EUREKA— A group of 20 people, including parents, teachers, students, staff, and community members, gathered on January 22 and 23 at the Humboldt Area Foundation to update Grant Elementary School’s Strategic Plan. The new site strategic plan plan will serve as a guide for the school over the next five years.

Grant’s new mission statement reads, "Grant School, an innovative educational community dedicated to excellence, prepares our students to be responsible citizens in this global society by engaging them in a creative and diverse curriculum that promotes exploration and celebrates learning."

According to Grant School principal Lee Ann Lanning, “Strategic planning provides an opportunity for our school community to dream of where we would like our school and our students to be five years from now, as well as the necessary steps to be able to reach our goals.” In speaking about the new school plan, Lanning commented, “Our new strategic plan will be our standard when we discuss our academic goals. We will look to the plan when committing our fiscal resources to achieve those goals.”

A complete copy of Grant’s Strategic Plan, including the objectives and tactics, can be found in the school’s office and on the school’s Web site: www.eurekacityschools.org/grant.

All Eureka City Schools have developed site strategic plans with input from staff and the community. Eureka City Schools initiated its district-wide strategic planning process in 1994.
