Strategic Plan 2020-2025

This guiding document, Blueprint 2025, is provided as a high-level overview of the district’s plan. In addition, we have provided a breakdown of strategies by goal.

Due to the significant and ongoing impact of COVID-19, designation of benchmarked measurable outcomes for each year is difficult to establish at this time. The district will use the 2021 spring assessment results as a baseline for yearly targets based upon each goal.

School Parent Compact
Together we will develop an agreement that parents, students and teachers will develop to explain how all stakeholders can work together to ensure all students reach grade-level standards.

Youngsville Elementary School believes that parental involvement means the participation for
parents in regular two-way and meaningful communication about student academic learning
and other school activities.
This ensures that parents are full partners in their child’s academic development and are
included, as appropriate, in decision-making and on advisory committees to assist in the
education of their child.
