Strategic Planning Initiative

Creating a vision for our children’s future.

Federal Way Public Schools has embarked on a Strategic Planning Initiative to develop the vision and direction for enhancing student achievement and success in the coming years.

The strategic plan will be our roadmap toward a future vision and provides unity, clarity and direction to the important work of the district.

In developing our plan, the District will use an approach that is inclusive and intentional and values all voices, and will continuously engage all stakeholders within the Federal Way Public Schools community.

This work must be collectively developed by members of our greater school community. There will be many opportunities to provide input on the Strategic Plan over the course of the year. The online survey is the initial effort to gather input, a series of forums for students, families and communities is another opportunity for participation.

We hope you’ll join in shaping what our school system should do and be for our community’s children.
