NSSD has a systematic needs assessment and goal setting process that provides a clear and focused direction for the district. Within this process all improvement activities and initiatives for the entire district are identified. This process begins in February when the Board reviews all Board and District Goals. The superintendent follows the Board with his goals for the following year. These two initial steps set the stage for district directors and building principals to make aligned decisions for the coming school year.
