Strategic Planning Committee

In partnership with Learner-Centered Collaborative (LCC), Monrovia Unified identified key stakeholders who will make up a Guiding Coalition. The Guiding Coalition will include district and site administrators, teachers, classified staff, students, families, and community leaders. Primary responsibilities include monitoring goals and outcomes, ensuring alignment to the North Star (including the district vision, mission and focus areas), identifying success indicators for this project, and managing communications. These activities will contribute to development of the Monrovia Strategic Plan. The three main goals/objectives of the process include the following:
