PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Education officials are asking Rhode Islanders to help develop a strategic plan for elementary and secondary education.

The Board of Education, the Council on Elementary and Secondary Education and the Rhode Island Department of Education say the goal is to have a statewide vision for public education in Rhode Island through 2020.

Board of Education Chairwoman Eva-Marie Mancuso says they want the planning process to include those whom education policy affects most directly.

The education department is launching a statewide survey, and will later schedule community discussions, small group discussions and individual interviews.

About a dozen people will be invited to help develop and write the plan. It is expected to be finished in June.

The survey and additional information about the planning process is on the education department’s website.
