The School Board of the City of Manassas established four focus areas for the new strategic plan (Student Achievement and Student Services, Human Resources, Communication and Community Engagement, and Operations), and engaged families, students, business leaders, community members, and staff members to identify needs, goals, and objectives that the division should achieve over the next four years. Development of the plan began in February 2017 with the Strategic Planning Priorities Survey for all internal and external stakeholders.
In March 2017, the Strategic Planning Priorities Survey results were presented to the school board. After considering all feedback, the board updated the vision and mission statements which the strategic planning committees used to guide their work.
The division established committees for the four focus areas and invited parents, students, business representatives, and MCPS staff members to join. The committees met multiple times between March and May to review the survey results and other data and build a framework for the strategic plan.
The strategic plan is centered on student learning and includes for-ward-thinking strategies that will best prepare students for their adult lives. Each focus area committee developed goals, objectives, and strategies that set the direction for the next four years.

Goals and Balanced Scorecard
The 2017-2021 Strategic Plan will be monitored primarly through a balanced scorecard. The balanced scorecard consists of key performance indicators (KPI) that MCPS will use to measure progress toward each goal. Data from the 2017-2018 school year will establish baseline values that will be used to evaluate the progress of each goal.
