Strategic Planning Initiative

Lightbulb clipartThis school year La Grande School District is engaged in launching a Strategic Planning Initiative to identify and meet our future district goals, and we invite you to participate and support this journey with us!

The Strategic Planning process will result in a new Vision, Mission and Beliefs statements, 3-5 strategic goals and performance indicators to monitor student success and goal attainment.  Overall the strategic plan will help guide us with financial investments; Decision making in the best interest of students and staff; Communication, and overall focus for our school district.

We invite you to support and give feedback with this important initiative through our online survey where we ask a set of 5 questions that will help us gather information, perspectives and insights from a variety of stakeholders in this community. Information that you share will be analyzed and used to help us establish values, beliefs, goals for our school district.

We hope you can encourage as many of our fellow school district parents, staff and community members  to complete this survey.  Please contact Gaye Young or George Mendoza at 541-663-3200 for more information.


Survey is now closed, thank you for your responses.
