Shawnee Mission announces members of ‘action teams’ charged with fleshing out strategic plan

Shawnee Mission has named the members of the five action teams that will flesh out its strategic plan.

The Shawnee Mission School District has announced members of the five “action teams” that will be charged with creating detailed plans to achieve the objectives defined last month as part of the district’s long-term strategic planning process.

The teams will begin their work this month. The planning process timeline calls for them to wrap up their portion of the project by May so that it can be incorporated into a final plan the steering committee will present to the board of education for approval in June.

The action teams are primarily made up of district staff, but do include several members of the community as well.
