Last year, the district administration worked closely with the board of education
and the community to develop the districtwide strategic plan. This plan is
designed to empower each of our students to explore their passions and interests.
At the core of the strategic plan is our vision to “elevate, engage, and inspire” our
students by building a culture of high expectations where students will possess
the knowledge and skills that will prepare them for a variety of post-graduation
options. Our children will benefit from healthy, productive, and supportive
relationships between students, staff, families, and the community. Finally,
every student learns and develops differently. Keeping this in mind, each student
must have equitable access to educational opportunities that will allow each to
pursue their full potential as responsible citizens and lifelong learners.
