Over the course of the 2020-2021 school year, a total of 38 community members, staff members, students, administrators and school board members came together to design the framework for what is now the Prairie Hill School District's Strategic Plan. This plan will be in effect from the fall of 2021 to the spring of 2024. Many of those members will continue to meet annually to discuss the progress of the strategic plan and determine viable next steps. The Prairie Hill School District School Board adopted the strategic plan at the June 22, 2021 regular school board meeting.
