    Strategic plan

    During the spring of 2016, a Planning Team of 45 members representing the Rialto Unified School District and Rialto community gathered to build a Strategic Plan intended to transform the school district from within. The collective voice of administrators, teachers, students, parents, and members of the community produced a plan anchored on creativity and innovation and guided by a set of core beliefs, a mission, objectives, strategies, and parameters.  

    To bring the plan to life, an Action Team of approximately 250 members took the Strategic Plan and created a set of Action Plans under each strategy.  Each school then followed with its local plan, creating objectives and tactics to support the District Strategic Plan.

    What follows is a summary of the accomplishments, under each strategy, from year one and the ongoing initiatives that will offer students, staff members, and parents a collection of rich and innovative experiences within the school district and throughout the community in the coming years.
