2023-2028 Strategic Plan

Be Kind. Be Curious. Be Well. Our district tagline captures the focus and direction of the Glastonbury Public Schools Sixth Generation Strategic Plan. The plan voices the district mission, core values, beliefs about learning, and vision of the graduate (the “why”), our strategic goals (the “what”), and our action plan (the “how”). 

Student success is the essence of our work. As a preK-12 learning community, our goal is for every graduate to develop important skills that will help them to be successful now and in the future. We will empower students to be active learners, curious thinkers, resilient individuals, and compassionate citizens. 

The Board of Education lists our specific powers and duties in our bylaws. First on that list is the responsibility to set goals and objectives for the district and to annually review progress toward meeting those goals and objectives. In addition, the Board is responsible for adopting revisions in the curriculum upon the recommendation of the superintendent of schools. Thus, over the next five years, many of the actions and strategies identified herein will come to the Board for review and approval. We will see program and school reports, curricular and policy changes, new course proposals, and budget requests. 

The strategic plan sets forth a shared understanding for our community to support the educational practices of Glastonbury Public Schools. We offer sincere thanks to the educators who worked passionately to develop this plan.

Be Well.  We support our school community by being role models of healthy behavior and good decision-making. Social, emotional, and physical well-being are all important components of educating the whole child.
