The Bexley City School District initially developed its mission, vision and strategic priorities in 2001, upon the arrival of Superintendent Mike Johnson.In 2007 - 2008, the community reviewed and revised the original document to reflect its current concerns. Some 378 residents and staff members expressed their views and priorities in 18 small group meetings over a several-month period. The Bexley Board of Education reviewed and revised the proposed policy in late 2008 and adopted the current language in February 2009.
