WMRSD Blueprint for Tomorrow

The White Mountains Regional School District is undergoing a redesign project/study to optimize the district and schools’ resources to maximize student success.

The Steering Committee will consist of 17 members. These members are made from a broad representation of community and business leaders, WMRSD parents, school board members, administrators, and teachers.  The Steering Committee will vet data and recommendations provided by the Project Team and present the recommendations to the school board. The Steering will also be responsible for creating and implementing a community communications and buy-in plan.  

The Project Team will consist of 12 members.  They will design and carry out the data collection process and make recommendations to the Steering Committee concerning their findings.  The team will seek guidance and approval for data collection methods and resource expenditures. The team will be populated by students, teachers, and administrators.  

The redesign project is being facilitated by Dr. William Bryan from the Center for Secondary School Redesign (CSSR).  This work is funded through our Federal Grants program. The committee work will kick off on February 5, 2019 with a full day workshop for both committees.   

After the initial workshop, the Steering Committee will meet monthly and the Project Team will have a series of tasks to complete between monthly meetings.  The redesign project is estimated to run from February to June/July 2019.
