Strategic Planning


The M. A. Rooney Foundation provides strategic planning support that focuses on increasing student achievement. We provide collaborative planning processes that include success plan development, meaningful and timely classroom and district data reports, and analysis structures that deliver results.

The Success Plan Strategic planning is a process. Early on, it is important to identify what is important to a school district. All key stakeholders will have an opportunity to provide initial input and are encouraged to share both successes and challenges, to voice concerns and to openly share what is working and what is not. This open dialogue is critical in identifying priorities and in the development of forward-thinking Success Plans that lead to intentional and measurable actions and sustainable change.

Student achievement increases when:

  • Success plans are clearly articulated and understood by all stakeholders.

  • Goals are measurable and are systematically monitored.

  • Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment are aligned.

  • Data is easily accessible and understood.

  • Data is effectively used to drive instruction.

  • All stakeholders “Own It!”

High achieving school corporations clearly articulate the success plan, deliver it consistently and monitor progress systematically. The M. A. Rooney Foundation works closely with school corporations to create plans that keep everyone focused and moving forward together for kids. Classroom and District Data Reports and Analysis Monitoring success is achieved through our unique reporting system. Imagine if all of your teachers had all student assessment data for each class they teach on one page! Teachers in our partner districts receive one-page classroom Roster Reports that include all assessment data for students they serve. The reports are customized to include district and state assessment data and are provided throughout the school year. No longer do teachers have to seek data from multiple locations to monitor student growth. Communication is critical to success and accountability is expected; therefore, all stakeholders must “Own It!” We work collaboratively to develop reports that support students, families, teachers, and district leaders, so that all stakeholders have ownership of student achievement.

The M. A. Rooney Foundation provides professional learning support that focuses on increasing student achievement. We work directly with school leaders to identify needs and next steps for success. Collaboratively, we design professional development opportunities that are engaging, motivating and relevant to district goals. Tailored professional learning opportunities provide support in how to most efficiently and effectively utilize data reports to maximize student success.
