School districts and other organizations use the strategic planning process to reflect upon their progress, gather feedback, review their core values, mission and vision, and plan for the future. Anthony Wayne Local Schools partnered with Planning Finding Leaders, an educational consultant to support the District’s strategic planning. 

We are pleased to share that the Anthony Wayne Local Schools Board of Education approved the District's new Strategic Plan in August 2022. You can learn more about the District's new mission, vision, beliefs and goals below, or by viewing the Strategic Plan Overview.

Board of education members, administrators, staff members, students, families, community members, business owners, clergy, and more were all an important part of this collaborative effort. Thank you for your contributions!
