The Groundwork for Success

The strategic plan identifies strategies that will best enable us to advance our ambitious mission. It outlines measurable objectives and priorities for implementation to improve our services.

In 2017, SCIO developed a Five Year Strategic Plan that would conclude in 2022. With the impact of COVID-19 during the past year, in May 2021, the Board of Directors determined that this plan should be extended for an additional year.
