The Blueprint for Continuous Improvement is DoDEA’s strategic plan for school years 2018/19 through 2023/24. The title reflects the philosophy that drives DoDEA’s strategic direction. A blueprint is an actionable plan that communicates and guides the work of all involved in a project. It is flexible and can be updated as the project develops and needs change. This is also true of our Blueprint, which serves as the foundation for all planning within DoDEA and directs our collective energies and resources as we strive to realize our vision. Further, the Blueprint will be continuously updated to reflect progress and shifts in students’ needs and the environment.
Andersen Elementary School will be conducting activities and professional staff development for Continuous School Improvement during SY 2022-2023. We encourage all parents to join us as we closely examine and evaluate our school data, vision, and goals.
