  • The processes most critical to department success will be determined and flow charted.
  • Flow charts will be sent to their supervisor for approval before submitting to the superintendent.

Goal #2: Improve Customer Satisfaction—By May 2019, a customer service survey will be sent to all staff and the results will be used to create PDSA plans for the next school year.
