Strategic Plan
Strategic Plan 2017-2020

INTRODUCTION

During the middle part of 2016, planning for the next strategic plan began.  This new plan will guide the organization over the next three years, beginning in January 2017. 

 

The planning process started with a needs assessment and survey that went out to a wide array of stakeholders including individuals, families and community partners.  It also included a strategic planning session with the full management team where the Vision, Mission and Values were reviewed and updated in light of recent mandates and trends in the field.  The next phase was focus group sessions facilitated by Treva Williams of Ohio State University Extension Office.  The process concluded with the full management team reviewing the feedback and identifying common themes that were refined to develop broad Strategic Goal statements.  The Scioto County Board of DD approved the draft version on December 15, 2016.

 

This document includes the revised Vision, Mission, Values and new Strategic Goals for 2017-2020 with Action Steps for 2017 included.
