We are fortunate to live in and serve a community that believes in the power of public education. The Chouteau-Mazie Public Schools team knows our friends, neighbors and fellow residents sincerely want every student in our district to experience academic and personal success.
Our school board recently embarked on a major initiative to develop a five-year strategic plan for the school district's future. This is an opportunity for us to discuss what we want education and our schools to look like for our students. As a parent of a Chouteau-Mazie student, your involvement is critical to this effort.
Our district is partnering with the Oklahoma State School Boards Association (OSSBA) and the K20 Center at the University of Oklahoma to develop this plan, which is expected to be completed by the spring of 2022.
The first step in the process begins today with an online survey for parents, students and staff members – to learn their thoughts about the school district and its services. We hope you will take time to complete the short questionnaire before April 23. All responses will be sent directly to OSSBA staff.
This is an exciting, intensive process that many other school districts throughout Oklahoma have successfully adopted and implemented to ensure their districts have clear, student-centered goals that lead to continual improvement.
Thank you for your support of the district and for being involved in this important process. I can't wait to work together to take our district – and our services for students – to the next level.
