Message from the BOE
The Iroquois Central School District’s Board of Education is excited to share that we have officially launched our community-driven strategic planning process. This initiative will guide the Iroquois Central School District through a five-year written plan to develop the future of the District’s vision, mission, core values, goals, performance indicators and measures of success, strategies, and action plans in offering an excellent education to the students of the Iroquois community.
The Board of Education has come to the decision that while this is a year like no other in educational history, there is no better time than now to be forward thinking. The strategic planning process will ensure that the District continues into the future as one of the premiere educational systems in New York State.
The Iroquois Central School District’s Board of Education has chosen PLC Associates, Inc., a firm based out of Rochester, NY, to help construct and lead the development of our Five-Year Strategic Plan. PLC's work will include input from a variety of stakeholder groups throughout the Iroquois community which will include the Iroquois Strategic Core Team and multiple focus groups.
The Iroquois Central School District’s Five-Year Strategic Plan will be the District’s "blueprint" for moving Iroquois forward in the future. The plan will clearly lay out the district's goals, will guide the district’s actions and decision-making, and will outline the ways in which Iroquois will measure progress on those goals
The Board is committed to upholding its tradition of being open and transparent with the Iroquois community by including various stakeholders in the future planning of the district. The District is pleased to announce that the Core Team of 40 members began meeting in early January. The committee includes students, parents, community members, local business owners, faculty, staff and administration. This diverse group brings a variety of experiences and knowledge to the committee and the work we are undertaking.
The Board of Education would like to invite all members of the Iroquois community to have your input heard. A survey is available on the School District’s website. Please take the time to complete the survey by the deadline of February 12th at 3PM. This input will be invaluable and inform the work of the Core Committee and focus groups. If you do not have access to take the survey electronically, please contact the District Clerk and a paper copy will be provided. We are looking forward to sharing our progress with you as we move through this important process.

Message from the Superintendent
The Iroquois School District has come to the decision that there is no better time in history than now to be forward thinking and take the necessary steps to bring the District into the future as one of the premiere educational systems in New York State. Therefore, we are undertaking a Strategic Plan initiative that will guide the District through a five-year written plan to review and develop the District’s vision, mission, core values, goals, performance indicators and measures of success, strategies, and action plans in offering an exceptional education to the students of the Iroquois community.
The Board is committed to upholding its tradition of being open and transparent with the Iroquois community by including various stakeholders in the future planning of the District. Stakeholder involvement is extremely important because the entire Iroquois School District community has a vested interest in the success of all students and an important role to play in the education of our children. The Core Team will look to see where we are today, envision where we want to be, and examine our strengths as well as areas of need. Afterwards, they will identify fundamental areas where they see the greatest opportunity to achieve meaningful progress for our students: academic support, social-emotional well-being, infrastructure, technology or other identified areas. These areas will then have measurable goals and convene individual task forces to fully develop a plan to achieve those goals, which will be guided by continuous progress monitoring to ensure we remain on track.
Iroquois has a proud tradition of being a school district with a strong foundation based in the students, families, community members, and staff. The future is filled with opportunity and now is the time to take the bold step to move forward with the Strategic Plan initiative.
