Brooklyn City Schools Logo        Strategic Planning Committee Participates in a Breakout Session

Beginning in the fall of 2021, the Brooklyn City Schools began an important strategic planning process led by a committee representing all district stakeholders, including administrators, teachers, classified staff, representation from the Board of Education, parents, and community members. Over the course of three meetings, the Strategic Planning Committee has made considerable progress towards the development of an action-oriented plan that will address learning challenges and create a pathway to ensure student achievement and growth in the future.

Throughout the entire process, the committee has demonstrated collaboration, positive energy, creativity, and most importantly, a steadfast commitment to helping students and the district succeed. Anticipated for completion in the spring of 2022, the final strategic plan will include the identification of core values, new mission and vision statements, areas of focus, targeted goals, and action steps to achieve each stated goal. As a result, the Brooklyn City Schools seeks to set a solid foundation to continue its proud legacy of tradition, pride, and excellence.

The Brooklyn City Schools will make regular updates to this page with information related to the strategic planning process. Please take a moment to review and learn more about this important district initiative. Thank you for your continued support of the Brooklyn City Schools.

Portrait of a Hurricane

Beginning in January 2021, a committee composed of administrators, teachers, classified staff, representation from the Board of Education, and parents met together to identify the characteristics Brooklyn students will possess upon graduation. A total of six competencies were finalized in the District’s Portrait of a Hurricane document featured below and which is also visibly posted throughout the entire district campus. The Portrait of a Hurricane will play a role in the District’s ongoing strategic planning process and serve as an important guide for student learning, achievement, and growth.
