In December of 2015, the Millsap ISD Board of Trustees adopted a Strategic Plan for the school district. The Strategic Plan guided MISD's work for two years as well as kept actions focused. However, by Fall of 2017, much of the Strategic Plan had been accomplished and, so, the journey to update the plan started.
A Strategic Planning Committee was formed with parents, community members, school board members, students, and staff. The committee met as a whole to review the Mission/Vision/Values of Millsap ISD as well as the Portrait of a Graduate, the plans’ goals and strategies. From these discussions, five strategy statements were written resulting in five Strategic Plan Action Teams.
The Action Team leaders presented their work to the Strategic Planning committee for approval and support. The committee analyzed the work and gave approval for the plan to be presented to the Millsap ISD Board of Trustees to consider. Millsap ISD's updated Strategic Plan was unanimously approved in February of 2018.
