2024 Strategic Plan

Strategic Plan

Our Strategic Plan is a visionary blueprint that will inspire the future of education in Lynwood.

At the heart of our plan, approved by the Board of Education on December 7, 2023, is the belief that every student deserves the opportunity to thrive in an environment that fosters innovation and inclusivity. We are implementing initiatives that enhance learning and teaching experiences and ensure that these opportunities are accessible to all, regardless of background or circumstance. 
Shaped by a wide representation of voices and perspectives – from students and staff to families and business leaders – this plan is the culmination of 18 months of extensive research, community consultation and the dedicated efforts of our educators and staff, all united by a common vision – to unlock the full potential of every student who walks through our doors.
