Franklin Central Supervisory Union Strategic Goals
It is essential that all goals support the culture of the organization, as defined by the mission and vision statements. Goals are shaped and impacted by the needs and wants of students, employees, parents, Board, and community members (including the greater community of Vermont, Federal Government and the laws). This helps determine the focus for current and future interests and demand for resources.
