Rahway Public School District
Strategic Planning Process
The Rahway School District is embarking on exciting long-range Strategic Planning, facilitated by NJ School Board Association. We will work together to create a shared vision for the district, identify both the strengths of the school district (those special attributes that we can build on as we move into the future) and the critical issues that we will face (the challenges that the district must be prepared for in the future).
The first meeting was held on Thursday Jan. 18, 2018 at 6:30 p.m. in the Roosevelt School Cafeteria. We worked in groups, and discussion led us to a consensus document that identifies our community’s perspectives on our strengths and challenges for our district that will help us develop goal areas focusing on the future for our schools.

The second meeting was held on Monday Febraury 5, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. in the Roosevelt School Cafeteria. Rahway School District Administration, staff, Board of Education members, parents, students and community members, thirty-three (33) in total, came together to continue strategic planning. The second evening topic focused on creating a shared vision for the Rahway School District. The meeting began with an overview of the first meeting. We then discussed the idea of moving away from the district for 5 years and coming back, only to find Rahway on the cover of Time magazine, as a “School that has Succeeded”! What would you envision happening in the school system to make this happen? Participants then gathered in randomly assigned groups to develop a shared vision. Small groups of participants brainstormed and shared ideas together. After group discussion, each group identified their consensus points and presented those to the full group of meeting participants. Finally, visonary common threads from each group's output were identified and recorded. Click on the link below for details of the meeting.
The third meeting was held on Thursday, March 22, 2018 in the Roosevelt School cafeteria. Once again, Rahway School District Administration, staff, Board of Education members, parents, students and community members came together to continue strategic planning. The focus of the vening was to examine the collective information from the two previous sessions and develop Goals and Objectives that will serve as the framework for the Action Plans, which will be developed and presented to the Board of Education for approval.
In collaboration with district administration the Rahway Board of Education will use these documents to help shape future goals for the district as we move forward.
