Strategic Planning

SP Banner

OSTL updated its Strategic Plan in June 2021. The Strategic Plan was originally completed in 2018. Required by law, it created a roadmap to help OSTL fulfill it’s mission to “develop and advocate for sustainable asset management strategies that maximize long-term revenue for Minnesota's public schools.”

A number of key events have occurred since the 2018 plan was developed. These include the election of a new Governor, appointment of a new DNR Commissioner, reappointment of the School Trust Lands Director, and perhaps most critically, the Covid-19 pandemic. Each of these circumstances, coupled with emerging opportunities for revenue enhancement and resource stewardship, has impacted OSTL’s focus areas, goals, and priority strategies, compelling us to update the plan.

The update will guide us in a time that calls for flexibility, innovation, an agile mindset, and effective, nimble governance. It is organized around goals and strategies in the following three focus areas:

  • Advancing the School Trust Lands Portfolio
  • Collaboration
  • Outreach and Engagement

We thank the many contributors who helped update our strategic plan, and commend those who work tirelessly to continue fulfilling the school trust legacy.
