The Butler County School System is seeking input from the public as it develops a new strategic plan.

The previous Butler County Strategic Plan covered 2006-2011 and led to the development of local curriculum guides, school safety improvements, Pre-K expansion and facility upgrades.

“The Butler County School System wishes to engage the community in developing a five-year strategic plan for the progressive academic achievement of Butler County students,” said Amy Bryan, interim superintendent of Butler County Schools.

“By seeking input from current and former students, parents, school employees, community members, business leaders, etc., the system will design a plan that moves the district forward towards excellence. “

A brief online survey will be placed on the school system’s website ( from March 17 to April 15.

Administrators will also hold three public meetings to gather input from the community.

The meetings will be held March 17 at 6 p.m. at Georgiana School, April 3 at 6 p.m. in McKenzie School and April 8 at 6 p.m. at Greenville High School.

Bryan said that at the meetings, the school system’s vision and mission statements will be revisited, a timeline for developing the plan will be presented, a paper copy of the online survey will be available and participants will be invited to work on individual committees.

According to Bryan the new plan should be in place by August.
