    Seattle Public Schools Strategic Plan

    The 2019-24 Seattle Public Schools Strategic Plan was adopted in March 2019. The plan reflects what Superintendent Juneau learned from students, families, staff and partners, and unlike prior plans, embodies “strategic.” While the district’s work to provide excellence to all of our students will continue, this new plan focuses on students furthest away from educational justice. It is a bold plan, one that will help us move the needle and make sure that every student gets what they need to graduate prepared for college, career, and community.
