Strategic objectives

  

STRATEGIC OBJECTIVES
In order to continue in its pursuit of excellence and provide a conducive teaching and learning environment, Workers High School identified six strategic objectives from the long list of critical issues in the school to respond to. They were derived from the findings of the SWOT and PESTLE analysis.
Each of the six strategic objectives is further broken down into specific work assignments that clearly reflect desired outcomes.
Therefore, the objectives function as the road maps to the achievement of the ultimate strategic goal. By so doing the activities identify the specific changes or improvements needed to accomplish each of the seven strategic objectives.
The strategies identified in this strategic plan document show how the activities that support each of the seven strategic objectives will be achieved. These will be the performance tasks that everybody involved in the implementation of the plan must undertake in order to make its realization a reality.
