Anchor Bay Schools Strategic Plan

Anchor Bay Schools is updating our district-wide strategic plan. This process will engage members comprised of students, parents, staff, and business and community leaders. There will be four meetings where all members will analyze best practices in education, learn about our district and will review survey data from our staff and members of our community. The members of this group will then establish the goal areas, which will help guide Anchor Bay with our future success.

The meetings are scheduled on October 27th, November 10th, November 30th, and December 7th. They will begin at 1:00 pm and end at 7:00 pm. Attendance at all four meetings is necessary to ensure consistency with the process.

If you are interested in participating on this committee, please complete the attached application form and return it by October 17, to your local school or the Superintendent’s office. Committee members will be chosen to represent all stakeholders and will be notified by October 20th.

The health and safety of Anchor Bay School District students is always of vital importance. A particular concern is bacterial skin infections such as methicillin -resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). When parents report that their student has been diagnosed with such infections, the school district takes immediate action notifying the appropriate health officials, having the custodial staff follow health department guidelines to clean high-touch or soiled surfaces throughout the building and alerting staff and parents. Information on MRSA and other health issues is available on these websites: or School administrators may be contacted with health concerns affecting their child in school. It is always a good ideal to encourage measures that reduce the spread of bacteria including good hand washing, not sharing personal items and keeping wounds covered. We encourage parents to reinforce these measures with their children at home.
