Steering Committee

The Shawnee Mission School District Strategic Planning Steering Committee is responsible for leading the strategic planning process in the district, and drafting a strategic plan for consideration and approval by the Shawnee Mission Board of Education in June of 2019.

The 30 stakeholders on this committee are representative of the Shawnee Mission School District community. They bring a broad and diverse background to their work, including experience inside and outside education, and reflect the district’s demographic profile. Together, these members will oversee the Strategic Plan work, which includes the development of district beliefs, a mission statement, strategies to achieve the mission, and action plans to put the strategies in place. The steering committee used the district profile to help guide their work.
