Proctor Schools are now working on a strategic plan. "We certainly know where we are, and where we've been. But now we need to know where we're going," shared John Engelking, the superintendent.

He said they had a three-year plan awhile back. So it's due. "We want our community to be involved, our stakeholders to be involved, faculty and staff, as we move forward," he added. "There are needs in our district, whether it be buildings or what goes in them."

Tuesday, a group of leaders gathered to hear how the process was going to unfold. Two people from the Minnesota School Boards Association shared what's next.

One of them was Gail Gilman, Director of Strategic Planning and Board Leadership. "We will be doing listening sessions and community meetings. Lots of engagement, to identify areas that are going well, and opportunities for growth. So the end result will be the plan, that will help lead them 3-5 years, and even more so, in the future."

There will be meetings and reports and surveys in the coming months.

Gilman said that they've completed 65 strategic plans, and eight more are on the docket, including Proctor and Hermantown. She told us that this is a newer movement in the state.
