AISC Futures Plan

AISC's Futures Plan was designed and approved during the 2017 - 2018 school year. This plan is community-based, flexible, and is a 3-year rolling plan, with a new plan added each year.

The Futures Planning model is mission-driven, allows for community stakeholder input and participation, and is defined by an annual three-year commitment to school improvement goals that account for short-term needs and longer-term visions for the future. By calling our plan a Futures Plan, we embrace views looking forward to considering the relevance of our current and future work, and we acknowledge that AISC’s improvement pathway will be composed of multiple futures that are perhaps not yet apparent to us.
