Community feedback revealed a restlessness among our students, parents and residents about our school system. We’re facing some tough questions: Do we still feel the same energy and spirit of years gone by? Is the commitment to our children still unwavering?
We know that we must take bold actions and make new investments to ensure that our students continue to get the support and education that they need.
We began this continuous improvement plan by inviting community members, business owners, parents, district employees and students to help us shape the priorities of the district going forward. As always, the mission is to provide the support for our children to grow and rise to new challenges through an ambitious and modern curriculum, arts, athletics and community spirit.
The plan that emerged has been shaped by this guidance from our our communities. We will focus on our core Cardinal Commitments:
Student Experience – diverse opportunities and support for success
Climate and Culture – optimal teaching and learning environment
Value – guided management of district assets
Operations – service, collaboration and facilities maintenance
While this plan is newly launched, we’re grateful for the hard work and passion that have already gone into it. So many of our students, parents, staff, community members and the school board have been instrumental in leading this conversation and providing key feedback that will help us determine how best to educate Cardinals for years to come.
