Strategic Roadmap

2020 Update!!
The strategic plan for Pequot Lakes Schools was approved in June 2014 and is in need of an update.  This 2020 Vision Report highlights some of the great work that has been accomplished over the past six years illustrating why Pequot Lakes is the top district of choice in central MN.  Please take some time to offer your input about how our district can continue to improve and be a world-class learning organization by filling out this brief survey.  The survey will close in early March 2020. 

In Pequot Lakes Schools, we strive to be a world-class learning organization in which every student learns at high levels.  Our strategic plan gives us direction and guides how we make decisions about defining excellence, what we are working towards, and how we allocate resources.  The Strategic Roadmap was adopted by the school board on June 16, 2014, after several months of input gathering and dialogue sessions with our local community and staff.
