Committee groups setting
five year plan for school

by Kim Fickett
Landmark reporter

Patrons from various areas in the Platte County R-3 School District have joined together to determine the district's five year strategic plan, known as Vision 2007.

"Vision 2007 is to develop objectives and strategies of the next five years to help us achieve our mission as a district," said Dr. Mark Harpst, superintendent of Platte County R-3 Schools.

Harpst, as well as assistant superintendents Ron Harmon and Greg McPherson, are chairmen of the three committees of Vision 2007. The committees are comprised of 60 faculty members, students, community members, parents and business people.
"We've received great input," said Harpst. "It's good to see the perspective of people from the community."

Harmon chairs the technology/curriculum committee, which looks at student achievements. McPherson leads his committee in student programs and district operations. Harpst's committee discusses facilities/long-term planning/finance and community relations.

The final meeting is scheduled for 6:30 p.m., Tuesday, Dec. 11 at the high school auditorium.

Harpst said he hopes to have a report prepared for the school board within six weeks to two months from the final meeting.
