Strategic Plan
2019-2025 Strategic Plan

Prosper ISD with the help of 175 School Personnel and Community Members developed a strategic plan that will guide our steps over the course of the next 5 years. Strategic Planning will truly influence the future by establishing a measurable plan and developing accountability to ensure that the plan is followed. Strategic planning is thoughtful, purposeful planning developed by district stakeholders. An effective Strategic Plan encompasses all facets of an organization and determines the organization’s long-term goals and the actions to take to accomplish these goals.

The PISD Strategic Planning Committee met on May 8-9, 2018 for the Strategic Planning Retreat where members worked on the District Mission, Vision and Belief statements. Members then decided upon the Strategic Objectives and were broken into committees to work on their respective strategies. Each Strategic Objective Committee met a minimum of two times in person in addition to online collaboration to develop the final Strategic Objective Statements as well as the Corresponding Action Plans.

Dual Credit
PHS Dual Credit Meeting
January 30th

There will be a very important presentation for students and families interested in the dual credit program for the 2019-20 school year on January 30th in the PHS Cafeteria from 6:00 – 8 pm.

General program information will be presented by representatives from Collin College and LeTourneau University who will present on the enrollment and registration process for these schools. As students are responsible for their own enrollment and registration with their respective program, it is vitally important for students or a family representative to attend this meeting. Enrollment information for next year will be available in the PHS counseling office and posted online to the counselor’s webpage after this date.

With only rare exceptions, dual credit courses are available for students who will be Juniors and Seniors only. Students who are interested in the dual credit program next year, including those currently in the program who wish to continue in dual credit, and those pursuing specialized career programs like Certified Nurse’s Assistant and Emergency Medical Technician, are strongly encouraged to attend. If you have questions in advance, please connect with your child’s counselor.
