Abstract ―​

This review explores how strategic planning in education impacts school performance in relation to the goals, vision, and objectives established by the Department of Education. It examines the effects of strategic planning on school operations and identifies factors contributing to the success or failure of plan implementation. In the academic sector, both long-term and short-term implementation plans require the application of strategic planning concepts by school leaders. Currently, the Department of Education faces numerous challenges, problems, concerns, and issues that need addressing. The objective of this review is to determine how strategic planning is applied in schools and its effects on performance and operations, aiming for continuous quality improvement in the education sector. Additionally, the review seeks to highlight the significance of strategic planning within school organizations. Relevant literature was reviewed and analyzed using the narrative synthesis approach. Strategic planning is a systematic process that sets ambitions for a school's future and determines the best ways to achieve them, connecting three key areas: mission, vision, and planning. It is essential for setting students up for success in K-12 education and beyond. A robust strategic plan articulates a shared vision, mission, and values, increases engagement, and provides a framework to meet students' needs, enabling them to reach their full potential.
