Strategic Plan 2020

(Academic Years of 2017-2018, 2018-2019, & 2019-2020)



Strategic Plan Development

The Directors, Lead Instructors, and Board of Trustees will participate in strategic planning for the apprenticeship program. All plans should be created to support or advance the institution’s vision and mission statements.  The process includes developing one to three-year measurable objectives or goals, creating specific strategies to achieve each goal, designating the funding needed to achieve each goal, developing strategies to evaluate progress made toward each goal, and assessing its status, completion, and success. 

Most of the goals are structured by school years and will be formally reviewed at the completion of each year.  However, goals will be monitored throughout each year by a designee of the institution.  A status report of this strategic plan will be provided to the Board of Trustees at one of the summer regularly scheduled Trustee Meetings. 

Institutional goals may be modified, deleted, or permitted additional time to complete as needed but the reason(s) for changes should be documented in the review process.  At the annual review of the institutional goals, each institutional goal will be reviewed and a up to date status will be provided.   The goal status will be identified as one of the following: Task Complete, Not Complete/Revised, In Progress, or Suspended.
