Strategic Planning/Community Engagement Invite

Dear Patrons of the communities of Oakland and Craig,

Please join us from 6:00pm to 7:30pm (90 minutes) on Monday, March 26th, 2018 at the Oakland-Craig Elementary Gym for the opportunity to provide community input into current and future initiatives as our school district looks for innovative and effective ways to meet the growing challenges facing public education in the 21st century.

While this meeting is an opportunity to discuss specific questions, it also reflects our ongoing commitment to ensuring that our district programs reflect the values and wisdom of our local community.  As we look to prepare our students for college and career, we want to be sure we understand our community’s perspectives on questions like these:

  1. Identify the points of pride, accomplishments, and achievements of the school district.
  2. Identify the challenges that may impact the district in the next three to five years.
  3. Identify the challenges facing the community and how this will affect the school district.
  4. Identify the obstacles that may prevent the district from addressing the identified needs.

The input we receive from the community will influence all future, developing, and existing initiatives and innovations.  We believe that when citizens deliberate about an issue and when a community is given the ability to help make choices, the directions chosen are often better and more sustainable.  We would very much appreciate your input, and hope you are able to attend.

Call us at (402) 685-5661 or email us at with your response for any questions.

Thank you in advance for your participation.

Jeff Smith, Superintendent of Oakland-Craig Public Schools
