Mapping the way forward
How can we most effectively prepare our students for the workplace of tomorrow? We know it will be a technology-driven, fast-moving workplace with global competition for jobs. To succeed, our students will need to be able to learn and relearn constantly, as technology speeds up the pace of information and change. Our schools must prepare them by fostering creativity, intellectual agility and critical thinking – as well as higher-level thinking skills; digital and technological competency and access; literacy, numeracy and content mastery; the ability to innovate, and communications and entrepreneurship skills.
As a public school district, it is our responsibility and our privilege to provide the schools our students need and deserve, schools that offer global teaching and learning experiences that build lifelong learners.
Strategic Plan 2018: For a Better Tomorrow charts the strategic direction our district will follow to prepare the students of today for success in the future. This plan reflects an unprecedented amount of community and employee input, and it is the articulation of our shared aspirations for our children. It is also our roadmap to be the best public school district in the U.S., one where we prepare every child, every day, for a better tomorrow.
