The District’s Strategic Plan
The District’s 5-year Strategic Plan provides a long range plan to guide future improvement efforts and identify funding. The Strategic Plan for 2016-2021 aligns with the vision, mission and core beliefs of St. Johns County School District and is focused on five overarching goals supported in five strategy areas; Academic and Student Services, Operations, Community Relations, Human Resources and Superintendent and School Board. Within each strategy there are 1-year strategies or objectives called tactical plans. These tactical plans are developed and Board approved each year to fulfill the five strategic areas. It is within these tactical plans where you can find technology related goals that support network infrastructure upgrades, classroom technology upgrades and other technology projects. Other technology based projects are outlined in the Digital Classroom Plan (DCP) that is updated and submitted each year to FLDOE.

- The identification of high-quality curriculum content is essential to the success of meeting student needs.
- The technology used must be student-centered.
- Professional development for teachers must be provided.
- The proper infrastructure support is critical to the success of implementing the technology vision.
- The most appropriate technology devices will be identified to meet assessment and curriculum needs for all students.
- The technology support must be proportional to the number of devices per school site and the service level needed.
