Green Bay Area Public School District leaders are dedicated to ensuring all students graduate college, career and community ready, and are inspired to succeed in Green Bay’s growing diverse community. To achieve this mission, Superintendent Michelle Langenfeld and School Board President Brenda Warren recently announced their “strategic roadmap” for the district, a plan that focuses on preparing students for 21st century learning to meet the needs of a global economy.

The Board of Education has held retreats over the past several months to define the direction of the district, and will share the strategic roadmap with the community at the following engagement sessions:
