Isle of Wight County’s School Board voted unanimously on June 9 to adopt its 2022-27 strategic plan.

The two-page document, which has been in development since 2021, will “provide direction and focus for the division as we move forward,” said Assistant Superintendent Mike Lombardo.

Last fall, a steering committee of staff, students, parents and other community members identified four main goals for the new plan: academic excellence, family engagement, recruitment and retention, and organizational effectiveness and efficiency.
