K-12 Strategic Planning for Schools

Learn how Insight is partnering with schools and districts to develop comprehensive and equitable strategic plans in education.


Re-envisioning the Strategic Planning Process

Align your strategies and priorities into one coherent, strategic plan.

Competing priorities and daily challenges can cause districts to lose focus on their long-term goals. Creating and implementing an effective strategic plan helps districts prioritize initiatives to achieve their mission and vision. 

District-level strategic plans are critical to set the right course for a district. Completing long-term planning in isolation can lead to a gap between the goals of the district and the daily routines in schools and classrooms. Often seen as bureaucratic, mandate-based exercises in compliance, School Renewal Plans and School Improvement Plans can be much more!


Insight Education Group is a champion of accelerated learning strategies and equity-driven strategic plans.

Insight’s experienced former district leaders work collaboratively with school leaders to align to the new realities facing all districts today by:

  • Creating new strategic plans, or
  • Analyzing and updating existing strategic plans

Be bold. Be equitable.

Through Insight's collaborative and iterative approach to strategic planning, your organization will create and implement a thoughtful plan that brings bold and equitable change.

How it Works

  • Create a new strategic plan: Insight uses a comprehensive, data-driven strategic planning process to engage your local stakeholders. We start with a process to ensure we have a deep understanding of your unique needs and a plan to include students, educators, and the local community. Using Insight’s Strategic Planning Framework, we then facilitate the crafting of a thoughtful strategic plan that guides sustainable implementation.
  • Update an existing strategic plan: If your district already has a strategic plan, Insight can provide an analysis of the current plan and recommendations for improvement. Insight can then work alongside district stakeholders to revise the plan.
  • Reimagine School Improvement Plans: Insight works with stakeholders to rethink School Improvement Plans as site-based strategic plans. Insight provides a "train the trainer" approach for district leaders to engage schools in a process that mirrors the district-level planning to ensure alignment from district to school to classroom.
