Pequot Lakes School Board continues work on strategic roadmap

The Pequot Lakes School Board met in a monthly workshop Monday, May 5, where school board members and Superintendent Chris Lindholm continued to work on an updated strategic plan.

The draft strategic roadmap includes four sections: mission statement, core values, 2020 vision and strategic directions. Board members agreed on wording of the first three sections, and worked at length on the strategic directions.

The board will meet in June to continue that work.

Other discussions Monday included:

• Construction updates: Discussion included the additional bleachers for the football field and where they should be located to be compliant with the Americans With Disabilities Act, as well as the opportunity to add parking spaces for the school and HVAC improvements.

• The fiscal year 2014-15 draft expenditure budget. Numbers are very preliminary as the board starts work on the next budget.

Also, Mike Renford, recently promoted to director of buildings and grounds, shared his background.
