As the second strategic plan (2011-2014) drew to a conclusion, Superintendent John Hogan wanted to once again engage representatives of the schools, homes and community in collaboratively setting long term goals for the West Hempstead School District.
B. Formation of Council:
Superintendent Hogan recommended the formation of the third District Strategic Planning Council to the Board of Education. Mr. Hogan recruited Council members by posting a letter on the district website, writing an article for the local newspapers, and extending personal invitations to school and community leaders, including, but not limited to: WHEA (the teachers’ association), WHASA (the administrators’ association, PTA presidents, WHOSA (the office staff association) the West Hempstead Community Support Association, the Senior Citizen Association, Island Park School District, local houses of worship, private schools located within the district, and student government organizations. More than forty people, representing all constituency groups, volunteered to serve on the Council.
The facilitator had served as the co-facilitator for the first and second council:
Ann Peluso, Assistant Superintendent, West Hempstead School District
A planning meeting was held in November 2013 with Mr. Hogan and Ann Peluso. The dates and location of the meetings were determined.
Please see the attached for an update on the strategic plan which was discussed at the May 2015 Board of Education meeting.
