• A strategic plan sets the focus of a school district and provides for systematic implementation of the goals set forth in the plan. The developed 2022-2027 plan identifies four major goal areas with commitments, strategies, and action steps, providing a framework for the District over the upcoming years that will maximize student achievement district-wide.

    Coolidge Unified School District's (CUSD) vision is inspired by a mission and is shaped by our core values. This plan reflects the dedication and determination of our teachers, support staff, administrators, parents, and community to work together to prepare our students for the future.

    As CUSD continues to work towards the achievement of the goals related to the action plan, key strategies will be reviewed annually by the CUSD Development Committee. Modifications can/will be made in response to current trends, availability of resources, and changing the district belief as defined by the CUSD Governing Board.
