Dear Dexter Families and Community Members,

Dexter Community Schools has been actively working on the successor Strategic Plan to our current Strategic Framework from 2015-2020.  DCS engaged KnowledgeWorks last fall to assist with this process.  Over the past year, we’ve conducted a districtwide community survey, numerous focus groups, classroom visits, and sessions with leadership, teachers, Board members, and community members.  The process we’ve followed is provided in the graphics below:

On Tuesday, November 12th at 6:00 p.m. in the Creekside Innovation Room, we will be hosting a community meeting for parents and community members focused on the following two goals: 

  • To build clarity and collect input/feedback on the initiatives and action plans identified with the teacher groups, leadership groups, and community groups. We will work from the initiatives and action plans, as they currently stand.
  • Determine the roles and responsibilities from the parent/community level with respect to the strategic plan.

We hope you can join us, thank you for your continued support, and Go Dreads!


Christopher Timmis, Ed.D.
