SMFCSD 5 year Strategic Plan

The San Mateo-Foster City School District is working to establish a strategic plan that will result in the establishment of a five (5) year road map. This strategic plan will encompass the focus and work of the district.


The strategic plan is currently being developed by a broad-based committee tasked with evaluating the district's vision/mission, greatest strengths, and greatest areas of need. This committee is comprised of a diverse group of stakeholders including students, parents, teachers, classified staff, administrators, community members, and partner organizations.


The strategic plan process has completed the convening for five meetings that took place over a 4-hour time frame. The result of the series of committee meetings produced a December report to the Board of Trustees that identified any recommended future goals, changes to the district mission/vision; as well as the identification of the greatest strengths and greatest areas of need. These strategic meeting presentations can be found below.
