During the spring of 2016, a Planning Team of 45 members representing the Rialto Unified School District and Rialto community gathered to build a Strategic Plan intended to transform the school district from within. The collective voice of administrators, teachers, students, parents, and members of the community produced a plan anchored on creativity and innovation and guided by a set of core beliefs, a mission, objectives, strategies, and parameters.
To bring the plan to life, an Action Team of approximately 250 members took the Strategic Plan and created a set of Action Plans under each strategy. Each school then followed with its local plan, creating objectives and tactics to support the District Strategic Plan.
What follows is a summary of the accomplishments, under each strategy, from year one and the ongoing initiatives that will offer students, staff members, and parents a collection of rich and innovative experiences within the school district and throughout the community in the coming years.
Philosophy of Body, Soul, & Spirit
The main driver in the Rialto Unified School District is Strategics. Strategics is the method by which a community continuously creates a plan to serve extraordinary purpose. According to Dr. William Cook, Strategic Planning mentor, “Strategic decisions are those commitments that challenge the existing orders, create disequilibrium, and encourage risk toward new realities.” Our focus is for every student to be engaged and inspired in their learning in order to be prepared to continue their journey towards achieving their future aspirations.
