Strategic Plan: A Message From the Board of Education

  • Dear Maplewood Richmond Heights School District Community,

    We are pleased to share our newly adopted Maplewood Richmond Heights (MRH) School District Strategic Plan, which focuses the next five years of work on our students, our employees, our resources, our community and our collective health. This Strategic Plan will continue to build on MRH’s innovative spirit, distinctive culture and unique building-level metaphors to better prepare students to thrive in a diverse and changing world. 

    Our central responsibility as board members is to set the direction of the District, and we have pledged to do so with input and guidance from the community we serve. Ultimately, our charge is to steward the resources entrusted to us by our community to meet the needs of all students. This Strategic Plan articulates the values and vision – developed in collaboration with students, teachers, families, and community leaders – that we will apply to helping students achieve academic and social-emotional success.

    We recognize that our District’s success relies on participation from all stakeholders. We are committed to partnering with our community to nurture students’ personal growth and achievement. With your support, we will ensure that students are genuinely engaged and motivated to learn, and that our District continues to develop them as leaders, scholars, stewards, and citizens.

    At the center of our work is an intentional focus on equity, which is integrated into all aspects of the plan. Our goal is to ensure that every student has access to an outstanding education through their experiences at MRH, regardless of their background or circumstances. This work is ongoing and requires continuous improvement.

    We invite you to join us in implementing this plan which so many of you helped create. While honoring our distinctive legacy and traditions, we will shape a new future for MRH. We will foster belonging, inspiration, integrity, courage and success for all students. Together, we will build an equitable, inclusive District for every learner. 

    Thank you for your shared commitment to our students.
