Board Members


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


The Superintendent or designee shall recommend an appropriate process for establishing and/or reviewing the district's vision statement which 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.
