Tri-District Strategic Planning Committee to Host Public Engagement Meetings
 in Fort Kent, Madawaska, St. Agatha, and Eagle Lake

Since early September, 2016 the Tri-District Strategic Planning Steering Committee, under the coordination of Scott Voisine, Strategic Planning Consultant, has been developing a collaborative, ten-year strategic plan for MSAD #27, MSAD #33, and the Madawaska School Department. The planning process was approved by all three school boards and a final plan is due this summer.

Throughout the planning process, hundreds of community stakeholders were interviewed and engaged in feedback sessions using an appreciative inquiry process. In addition, the steering committee examined a significant amount of educational, demographic, and fiscal information. The responses collected from that appreciative inquiry process and information collected from the research reviewed were analyzed and are reflected in a draft plan that will be unveiled at the public engagement meetings.

“What the public will see at these meetings are the primary components of the strategic plan in their most polished draft form,” states consultant Scott Voisine. “The public will see this plan does not support a status quo approach to the future of education in the upper St. John Valley. It is bold, but it is also realistically responsive to what the area will be facing in the next decade and beyond.”

There will be four public meetings. All are invited. Voisine and members of the steering committee will be on hand to answer questions and to hear feedback from the community before finishing their work on the final plan. The dates, times and locations are listed below. If you cannot attend the meeting in your immediate area, feel free to attend any of the other sessions.
