Strategic Plan, 2005-2010
Table of Contents

The AISD Strategic Plan for 2005-2010 clearly focuses on education. We firmly believe that all of our students should be as well educated as any in the world, and that all of our students have the capacity to be high achievers. More simply, our students are the reason why we are here. But the Strategic Plan also addresses community, staff, and resource concerns to provide a balance in perspectives to ensure that all parts of the district organization work together to achieve excellence.
