Strategic Planning & Financial Health

Overview

Throughout our professional experience, we have cultivated an aptitude and enthusiasm for helping school leaders build a culture that is rooted in proactive, rather than reactive, governance. This brand of approach requires a broad view of all facets of school operations and instructional programming, perfect for the Skyrocket team!

Multi-Year Planning

For administrators interested in laying the groundwork for substantial and tangible school improvement, we offer consulting services that are customizable based on your vision and budget. From memorialization to stakeholder event coordination and plan implementation, we can be involved in any or every aspect of the multi-year strategic planning process.

Building a roadmap for success


Skyrocket senior leadership is excited to lead you and your school community through a multi-year planning process. Among the deliverables for such work, we will want to help you define critical plan elements in a concise written document:

  • Measurable objectives and key milestones
  • Complete list of actionable steps (with timeline) required to ensure a successful outcome
  • Project champions, contributors, and allies

Engage your stakeholders in the process


We will partner with you to develop the content and agenda for your planning event. You may wish to include your brainstorming activities, breakout PD sessions, or SWOT development. If desired, we can emcee and moderate the day’s activities and take point on event logistics:

  • Venue selection, decor, A/V
  • Attendee registration
  • Set-up and decor, event tear-down

Leverage Skyrocket’s robust talents


While it might be easy enough to name your goals and identify a target date, the most difficult planning question to answer is usually: How do we get there? Enter our incredible Operations Team! Their job is to fill in the actionable sections of your planning framework and connect you to departments and staff members who can deliver results in specific areas.

Prospective Areas of Wraparound Support:

  • Student Records Management
  • College & Career Preparation
  • Curriculum Consulting
  • Special Education, English Learners
  • Professional Development
  • Student Recruitment

Financial Consulting

A healthy budget is the keystone of any thriving school district. However, changes – some foreseen, some unforeseen – in local population trends, state mandates, community values, and facility utility can make year-over-year budget management a monumental challenge. Our Business Management team is dedicated to helping Skyrocket clients break budgets down into manageable decisions.
