District Goals

October 15, 2018


At last night's board meeting, the board took specific time to look at establishing clear goals for the school district. Specifically, setting goals with the intent to provide valuable focus areas, establish clear outcomes, and institute a culture of success within the district. At the forefront of these goals is the phrase "We Believe," which signifies that the board fully subscribes to the ideal that our district will strive to achieve these benchmarks. That belief then sets the standard for the workings of the district, its' administrators, its' certified staff, its' classified staff, its' students, and its' stakeholders. 

Attached you will find a document stating seven areas of focus for the district:

  • All students will attend school regularly
  • All students will achieve academic growth
  • All students' well-being will be supported
  • All students' stakeholders will be engaged
  • All students will achieve ACT success
  • All students will graduate
  • All students will achieve postsecondary success

With the board setting these expectations, district staff will now take the lead and develop action plans, implement those plans, and analyze the results. In doing so, the district will set upon its' new path of growth and achievement.

I look forward to working with all in advancing our district within this process.

We Believe
