Zeeland began the process in April, with guidance from the Michigan Leadership Institute. The district will create goals and develop an “ambitious vision” for ZPS over the next 3-5 years.

Stakeholder input is “critical to the success of this process,” the district said, adding that a stakeholder is anyone with a vested interest in ZPS. To capture these thoughts, the district is hosting a pair of entry sessions in November.

Sessions are scheduled from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. on Thursday, November 3 at the Zeeland East Media Center and from 5:15 p.m. to 6:15 p.m. on Tuesday, November 15 at the Creekside Middle School Quack Shack.

An online survey is available for those unable to attend the sessions. zps.org/strategicplan in English and Spanish.

The survey asks how the district can improve in specific areas, what the overall hopes and ideals for schools should be, and opinions on the current state of the district.

“We recognize that the best plans are informed by community needs and priorities, and we are excited to incorporate the feedback we receive from our stakeholders,” ZPS Superintendent Brandi-Lyn Mendham said at the start of the process.

“Our strategic plan will be a symbol of our commitment to continuous improvement and will help us communicate and celebrate our growth and progress along the way.”
