Strategic Plan
Delano Public Schools implemented a 5-Year Strategic Plan in 2013 that is currently being updated for the next five years, 2019-2024. In this plan, our vision is to provide our students systemic academic growth that promotes educational excellence and continuous improvement for every learner in a digital society. Along with this vision, our four major aims include: Technology, Curriculum, Professional Development and Facilities. Following this plan is an ongoing process that will ensure our school district continues to improve. Click here for more detailed information on the 2013-2018 Strategic Plan.
Beginning with elementary school, students learn to be lifelong learners by building a strong foundation necessary to prepare them for the next step in their education. At the intermediate and high school levels, students are involved in many innovative programs. The first of these is STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) education. Gateway to Technology (GTT) and Project Lead the Way (PLTW) have also been implemented. As we move forward, curriculum will continually be examined and enhanced to meet the demands of a digital learning environment.
College in the Schools (CIS) and Advanced Placement (AP) courses offer students the benefit of college courses without the full cost of tuition, allowing them to broaden their course selection before they enter a post-secondary institution. Along with these programs, our staff continues to engage students through the latest technological advances. These, coupled with engaging extracurricular activities, help us strive to better the educational opportunities for our students.
