Superintendent's Message

District 51 Strategic Plan Logo emphasizing our vision to engage, equip, and empower.

Dear Mesa County Partner,

I proudly present to you the Mesa County Valley School District 51 Strategic Plan for 2022–2025. This plan is the result of months of work by an expansive group of stakeholders in our community that included, staff, students, parents/guardians, local elected officials, invested community members, and our D51 Board of Education. The information in the Strategic Plan is based on feedback from you…our Mesa County community. The Strategic Planning process is a necessary action for a school district to undertake in order to move the organization forward and ensure student and staff success. This Strategic Plan will provide us with direction for the next three years so that we can focus on the things that matter most to our community. Fulfilling the commitments in the Strategic Plan is a process that involves all stakeholders within the district and within the community. By working together as a D51 family and the Mesa County community to implement all components of the Strategic Plan, we can make certain that we have prepared and supported students, prepared and supported staff, and engaged and supportive community partners. Most importantly, we’ll make sure that all students are successful academically, socially, and emotionally, and they graduate ready for college, career, and life. Fulfilling these commitments won’t be easy. The Strategic Focus Areas in the Strategic Plan are bold and require innovative thinking and planning. With the collective strength of our students, staff, families, and community, we will see these commitments through, and we will engage, equip, and empower each and every student, each and every day. I look forward to sharing my commitment to the expected outcomes established in the Strategic Plan with all stakeholders of Mesa County Valley School District 51.

Dr. Brian Hill, District 51 Superintendent
