Hanover High School soon will be developing a 5-year strategic plan. The Hanover High School Strategic Planning Steering Committee has developed a survey to gather information about the values and priorities of Hanover High School most important to stakeholders in our greater educational community. More than 1,000 people have completed the survey so far, but we want to hear from more people: alumni, senior citizens, business people, and other community members who are not directly involved with the school system. If you have not yet completed the survey, please take about 10 minutes to share your thoughts about Hanover High School.
