Flight Plan 2028

  • Flight Plan 2028 is a five-year strategic plan that reflects on feedback and priorities that were identified through community feedback, steering committee meetings, community meetings, strategic planning questionnaires, in-depth interviews, and school board insights. This Flight Plan 2028 will ensure that Red Oak ISD will continue to move forward as a strong school district and be prepared to face the challenges and opportunities ahead. The plan is the second five-year plan following Flight Plan 2023.

    The launch of Flight Plan 2028 will continue to guide the visionary pursuits of Realizing Our Individual Students Dreams (ROISD) and the pervasive implementation of the daily mission of the 4 Talons: *Prepared *GRIT * Character * Service. After several months of meeting and gathering input, the strategic plan includes the vision, mission as well as a roadmap for them, to build on the strengths and future potential of Red Oak ISD.

    The Flight Plan 2028 is a significant step in continuing to ensure that the district and all its stakeholders are moving forward together to make Red Oak ISD one of the best in the State and Nation when it comes to serving our communities, impacting our students, helping our teachers be their best and using growth to enhance the collective experience for all.
