3 STRATEGIC PLAN: METRICS THAT MATTER Michael J. Martirano, Ed.D. State Superintendent of Schools West Virginia Department of Education wvde.state.wv.us October 22,

4 INTRODUCTION Since I began my tenure as the 30th State Superintendent of Schools for West Virginia, I have worked with our West Virginia Board of Education, our Governor, our elected officials, community and business leaders, educational leaders, parents and most importantly, our teachers and students to institutionalize my entry and vision plan: One Voice, One Focus: All Students Achieving. The entry and vision plan established my initial goals as well as 10 World Class System Priorities for all West Virginia Schools. Once these goals and priorities were presented to the State Board of Education, the Department and our educational leaders, I embarked on a robust Listening and Learning communication opportunity - an endeavor to build relationships and trust, and begin the work of actualizing my entry and vision plan into a five year strategic plan. Along the way, we took a pause to engage with the legislature, ensure that our resources were aligned to the plan and to build an organizational structure at the West Virginia Department of Education that is staffed with a skilled and innovative team that is poised to respond to the urgent work outlined in the goals and newly defined objectives. In addition, I brought together a key advisory group made up of diverse stakeholders including educational leaders, experts, practitioners and community partners to provide input in strategic areas of operations, innovation, teaching and learning opportunities. This advisory group will meet on a periodic basis to assist the Department in making sure the outlined goals and objectives are being met. Throughout my thoughtful engagement with key leaders and stakeholders across our great state and careful reflection on the best means for improving the educational quality for each young person in West Virginia, I am ready to unveil the five year Strategic Plan. As I previously stated in the early days of my tenure, I cannot do this work alone - we must galvanize every citizen in West Virginia to eliminate academic failure for our youth. Again, I firmly believe that our best days are yet to come as we implement the measurable goals and objectives outlined in our Strategic Plan. Michael J. Martirano, Ed.D State Superintendent of Schools 2
