Strategic Plan

On November 27, 2012, the Dubuque Community School District Board of Education approved a new strategic plan to focus the district’s work into the future. The plan is designed to create and maximize the synergy between five key areas: student achievement, student development, community engagement, effective resource management and employee excellence.

We hope you will take a few moments to view the overview and full version of the plan:
