Strategic planning continues: Red Wing School Board briefs


Red Wing School Board at Monday's meeting reviewed the environmental scan completed Feb. 15, where about 70 students, staff members and community members participated in the three-hour session.

Superintendent Karsten Anderson reported that participants were divided into four groups and asked to discuss three areas in the district's environment in the realms of edge, emerging, established and ebbing.

Anderson said the district's administrative team will begin developing rough drafts of the teamwork's mission delivery point and theory of action before seeking more feedback from community members.
