School Board’s Major System Priorities

  1. Establishing internationally competitive standards for student performance and an accountability system and policy framework designed to insure that all students are challenged individually and collectively to meet more rigorous standards.
  2. In collaboration with technical colleges, other institutions of higher learning and the local business community, insuring that vocational/technical education programs prepare students for a diverse and technologically rich society.
  3. Insuring that all students and staff have a safe and secure environment for teaching and learning.
  4. Attracting, retaining, and training the best teachers, principals, and support staff.
  5. Utilizing technology both to improve student achievement and to increase the school district’s productivity and efficiency as a major business enterprise.
  6. Increasing parental and community involvement through public engagement policies and practices that treat parents, businesses, community-based organizations and agencies, local institutions of higher learning and other public entities as true partners in the educational process.
  7. Addressing exploding student population growth, recognizing that there is a large gap between the school district’s facilities and technology needs and available capital outlay revenue.
