Vision, Mission, Belief Statements

VISION STATEMENT We envision a highly effective district-wide safe and orderly Professional Learning Community that results in a premier school of highly engaged and highly motivated students preparing for High School and 21st Century College, Career and Citizenship responsibilities.

MISSION STATEMENT Our mission is to create a safe and orderly environment with a highly effective PK-8 district-wide Professional Learning Community that appropriately delivers NVCCSS to a rural student population that will result in a 100% graduation of eighth grade students adequately prepared for High School responsibilities.

BELIEF STATEMENTS

  1. WE BELIEVE that all students can learn at high levels.

  2. WE BELIEVE that this can best be achieved by becoming and performing as Professional Learning Communities (PLCs). We will be guided by three questions: A. What is it we want our students to learn? B. How will we know our students have learned? C. What will we do when they do not learn?

  3. WE BELIEVE in providing a learning environment that fosters citizenship, a high level of health and physical fitness; and one that supports a moral/ethical approach to the challenges of our current society, to college and to career readiness.

  4. WE BELIEVE in providing a learning environment that fosters respect for social and individual diversity.

  5. WE BELIEVE that “Family and Community Engagement in Public Schools” is critical to student success.

It looks like a February delivery date.
