The Bedford County School Board is moving toward adopting a new strategic plan. According to Dr. Douglas Schuch, the purpose of a strategic plan is to give a clear definition of where the school division wants to go so that resources can be properly allocated.
Dr. Schuch said focus groups that included parents, students, teachers and support staff have been held. Central office senior staff have met six times since November, 2015 to work on the plan. A large school staff group met in July to discuss it.
