Superintendent pitches strategic plan

Gainesville City Schools’ new leader unveils program using iPads

POSTED: July 8, 2014 1:00 a.m.

In her first public Board of Education meeting Monday, new Gainesville City Schools Superintendent Wanda Creel used iPads to unveil the district’s new strategic plan.

Board members used the state-of-art technology to navigate through the new paperless meeting documentation as part of the new meeting format during the work session.

Creel walked board members through the highlights of the proposed new strategic plan, which is available to the public online.

“We are working as one Gainesville to make sure that every one of our children is successful,” Creel told the room full of board members, principals, central office staff and administrators. “We are definitely putting action to that mission statement.”

She said the new plan puts a priority on areas of greatest need and centers around three main goals.

“One of the critical elements (of the plan) is our goal areas,” Creel said in an interview after the meeting. “They are instruction; learning support, which means that we are working on what is causing barriers to student learning; and the third goal area is our operations.”

Creel stressed in particular the importance of learning support in improving student performance and helping students get the most out of school.

Creel also stressed the plan provides a “road map” for administrators, but can be changed as needed.
