What is the Strategic Plan?

  • The NTPS Strategic Plan provides a road map that guides all our District’s work. It clearly defines the goals and outcomes for our students with specific measures which are reported on to our Board of Directors. This amazing plan was created by several committees that included students, staff, community members, parents, and leadership. To learn more about our work and understand our District’s vision for our students please access the Strategic Plan documents below.

Feedback & Updates

  • North Thurston Public Schools annually updates the Five-Year Strategic Plan through engagement and feedback with stakeholders to include parents, students, community members, staff, and the Board of Directors. Many of the stakeholders were members of the original team that developed the plan in 2017! To become a member of the stakeholder group for the annual review scheduled for April 14, 2022, please email supertintendent@nthurston.k12.wa.us and include “Strategic Plan” in the subject line.
