STRATEGIC INITIATIVE IV

RESOURCE MANAGEMENT

AND PLANNING

The Jamestown Public School District will allocate resources necessary to fund and execute the strategic plan. The ability to effectively operate the district, support stakeholder needs, and meet current and future needs are predicated upon both short and long-term planning in facilities, technology, and district finances.

Goal 1:  Long-Range Facilities Planning

Additionally, the district identified facilities and various systems that have reached the end of the useful lifespans and replacements and current funding is insufficient for needed renovations and replacements.

  1. Review and update the Capital Projects Plan to prioritize and quantify the facility needs across district facilities.
  2. Expand the district's building fund to 20 mils to address short-term facility priorities.

Goal 2:  Long-Range Technology Planning
The Jamestown Public School District recognizes the importance of technology, technology integration, and technology application in the ability to fulfill objectives in the strategic plan and in supporting the needs of the district to provide a high-quality education for all students.
