What is a Master Plan?A Master Plan is similar to a strategic business plan which guides the development or growth of a successful career academy network in a community. Community leaders consisting of employers, educators, foundations, civic leadership, parents and students work together to develop a vision/mission statement, strategies for meeting the vision statement, action steps, measurable outcomes, timelines and yearly goals.
Our Master Plan will be a document that will be unique to Shakopee, but will be guided by the three strands in the Ford NGL Framework: Transforming Teaching and Learning, Redesigning High Schools, and Sustaining Change Through Business & Civic Leadership. Our Master Plan will evolve over time and will be re-examined and updated on an annual basis.
The work of writing the Master Plan for the Academies of Shakopee will begin in June 2016 and completed in the Fall of 2016.For more information, you can visit http://fordngl.comThe Academies of Shakopee: My Place. My Path. My Future.
