With redistricting completed, officials in the Dublin City School District will focus on three other goals in the new year.

With redistricting completed, officials in the Dublin City School District will focus on three other goals in the new year.

Looking forward into 2016, district officials will continue working toward goals for the 2015-16 school year including forming a master plan for facilities, creating three-year plan for technology and ways to improve instruction throughout the district.

"It's all based around our 2015-16 goals," said Lynn May, Board of Education president. "I'm glad we can put the K-8 redistricting behind us."

A redistricting plan for the district was one of the goals for this school year, but it has been completed.

Superintendent Todd Hoadley approved a plan for redistricting before winter break began. The plan will impact about 360 students in grades K-8.

Redistricting comes as 22 new classrooms are being added to six elementary schools. The classrooms are expected to be ready for students in the fall when the redistricting plan goes into effect.

"When we come back in January we'll be doing a lot of notifications of parents and building-level meetings to make sure parents and students get to meet their new principal," Hoadley said.

Another goal for the 2015-16 school year has been creating a master plan for facilities and May said that will continue in the New Year.

"The creation of a master plan is very, very important for our entire community and school district," she said. "Going forward we need to lay the blueprints of where we need to be and how we get there."

District officials have said the new 22 elementary classrooms and redistricting will get Dublin through the next few years, but beyond that things might change.

The district saw a significant jump in enrollment over the summer and Hoadley said the district needs to look to the future.

"Over the next 10 years we're projected to grow 1,800 to 3,500 students," he said.

Dublin currently has more than 15,500 students.

Hoadley said he expects two new elementary schools, a middle school and additions to Dublin's high schools to be in the master plan.

"I just don't see a fourth high school over the next decade," he said.

Coffman High School has been added onto several times and Hoadley said the 2,000 student enrollment there is the biggest district officials want the building to be.

Scioto and Jerome high schools, however, could get additions.

"I don't think it's something that will surprise people," Hoadley said of the master plan.

The district will also continue on a technology plan that was started in December. Dublin is getting $1.5 million each year to spend on technology per a Bridge Street District agreement with the city. The plan is expected to help the district decide how to best spend the money on technology.

"One other piece people will hear a lot about in the spring time is the three-year technology plan," Hoadley said.

"That kicked off in mid-December and like all of our major initiatives we want to have members of the community involved in planning right beside us."

Six or seven more meetings are planned over the next few months to develop the plan that should extend over the next three years.

"We're excited about seeing that new technology plan developed," Hoadley said.

For Hoadley, instruction will continue to be a focus. Another one of the district's goals was to have principals lead instruction.

"Our business is teaching, learning and educating children," Hoadley said. "There will be a continuation of what we've been trying to put into place the last few years. We want to make sure we have world-class instruction happening every day."

Teachers will continue looking into three instructional goals: clear learning targets, high-quality assessments and differentiating for learners, Hoadley said.

Outside of the goals, May said she's also curious to find out what will happen in 2016 with the Every Student Succeeds Act that replaces No Child Left Behind.

"I want to see how local control is going to play out," May said.
