A Woburn organization has been selected to facilitate the development of a strategic plan for the Hingham Public Schools, and input from stakeholders will be a key part of the process.
Teaching and Learning Alliance, Inc. will work with Hingham school officials to put together a timeline of activities related to the project.
"This will be a rigorous process, with stakeholder input sessions in January and also a districtwide survey," Interim Supt. of Schools Gary Maestas told the School Committee recently.
Input will be sought from alumni, staff and faculty members, parents, grandparents, residents, and other interested parties about what such a plan should include -- such as identifying strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities -- as the process moves forward.
The targeted completion date for the framework of the study is early June, with publication of the plan expected around the end of that month.
Maestas will provide regular updates to the School Committee regarding which benchmarks have been achieved and dates for meetings with stakeholders, whose input, Maestas said, is "extremely important."
