In order to provide a clear focus for District programs, activities and operations, the Board of Trustees shall adopt a long-range vision that sets direction for the District. This vision shall focus on student learning and describe what the Board wants its schools to achieve. This vision is incorporated in various documents, including the District's mission statement, vision statement, philosophy, long-term goals, short-term objectives and/or comprehensive plans.

The following parameters that were developed during the District's Strategic Planning process shall guide the implementation of the District's long-range vision:

We will not allow the quality of our educational program to be compromised

We will do nothing that diminishes the dignity of any person

We will make all decisions based on the best interest of the student

We will practice collective responsibility and shared decision making throughout the District

The Superintendent or designee shall recommend an appropriate process for reviewing the District's vision statement that is inclusive of parents/guardians, students, staff and community members.

The Board shall review the District vision statements at least every three years or whenever a new Board member or Superintendent joins the District. Following these reviews the Board may revise or reaffirm the direction it has established for the District.

The Superintendent or designee shall communicate the District's vision to staff, parents/guardians and the community and shall regularly report to the Board regarding District progress toward the vision.
