New Year, New Strategic Plan

The Mason Public Schools last developed a strategic plan in 2015. The time has come for the district to develop a new plan and our goal is to engage our community in numerous ways to create a plan that the Board of Education will be asked to approve by June 2023. The first step in this process is to collect information from numerous groups within our school community.
