Strategic Plan

Our Mission

Inspire each student to learn continuously so they are empowered to reach personal fulfillment and contribute purposefully to our ever-changing world.

Share your thoughts on our draft Strategic Plan! 

Starting last fall, Eden Prairie Schools extensively engaged the community to hear ideas and priorities to include in a new strategic plan for the next five years. Students, families, staff and community members have provided feedback through surveys, focus groups and discussion forums. After reviewing all of the data collected, a representative Core Planning team and district leaders drafted an updated 2023-28 Strategic Plan.

2018-2023 Strategic Plan

Inspire EACH Student

The Strategic Plan is designed to be a roadmap for the school district, guiding decisions and development as we move together into the future. The plan was the result of many hours of work by hundreds of people, including parents, community members and district staff. It encompasses all aspects of the district’s work, from our youngest learners in Early Childhood, through the K-12 school years, and into lifelong learning provided by Community Education. It touches everyone – parents, staff, and community – but most importantly, is focused on our students.

Core Values

We believe that:

  • Each person has intrinsic value.
  • Each person has individual gifts, interests and talents.
  • Community benefits when each person contributes.
  • Relationships flourish on a foundation of mutual trust and respect.
  • Continuous learning is essential for personal fulfillment, opportunity and success.
