Lyons Central School District is developing a new long-range strategic plan that will set goals and guide management strategies over the next several years. A good planning process requires the district’s current strengths and weaknesses to be assessed. This survey allows you to provide input to the District’s Strategic Planning Committee regarding those individual strengths and weaknesses. The survey should take about 15 to 20 minutes to complete. We appreciate your honesty in these responses.
