About the plan

Washington Unified School District (WUSD) partnered with Performance Fact, Inc. to develop and implement a new equity-centered strategic plan that will be the District's guide for the next five years, from 2022 to 2027.
The new strategic plan is designed to build upon the previous plan's successes and align itself with the District’s Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP). The goal is to reinforce the strengths of our school system while recalibrating the District’s vision and commitment to excellence, equity, and empowerment for every student every day.
The Performance Fact team and WUSD leadership utilized a series of stakeholder teams to guide the development of a strategic plan that embraces the community's diverse voices. The stakeholder teams included a Core Planning Team (CPT) of district staff and community members, an Instructional Focus Team (IFT) that included teachers and administrators, an Alignment Team with West Sacramento business and community leaders, Student Groups with voices from grades 3-12, and Community Forums open to all individuals from the broader community.
