Strategic Plan Creation Process

Now open: Strategic Plan survey for current SUHSD parents/guardians, staff, and community members
As a District, we launched our Strategic Planning work in September of 2023. Through the process, we have engaged in rich conversation with lots of students, staff, leaders, families and community partners to draft the Portrait of a SUHSD Graduate which represents a vision for a graduate from our District, Goals & Measures to guide and ensure students success, and the Programs, Strategies, & Initiatives which are the things we must implement well to accomplish the Goals and Measures.
Your response will be used to help create the strategic plan.

Be a part of planning sequoia UNION HIGH SCHOOL DISTRICT's future!

Sequoia Union High School District is embarking on the process to develop our three-year strategic plan.
Our strategic plan will act as a roadmap for our school system, aligning all partners on common goals and a unified direction for our district in order to build a stronger school system for all students.
The creation of this community-wide strategic plan will be led by a diverse group of all partners including students, parents, community representatives, teachers, administrators, and staff.
The strategic planning process will also help inform the development of our LCAP plan.
There will be several opportunities for your voice to be heard. For more information, or to find out how you can be part of this process, please contact Rosa Miralles via email at or at (650) 360-1411, extension 22324.


The strategic plan process will span from September 2023 to June 2024. It will be formulated by input from five teams, the District's Board of Trustees, and the community over the course of several meetings/events, including three community forums. The goal of the strategic plan is to guide the District's future by setting priorities, focusing energy and resources, strengthening operations, and ensuring that employees, board members, and stakeholders are all working toward common goals.
