We will learn, apply, reflect, adjust and persist together.

Our students—from pre-kindergarten to twelfth grade—will develop the mindsets, knowledge, skills, and habits to achieve academic, career and life success.
Teachers will work together to ignite the joy of learning by building their collective knowledge and continuously expanding their mastery of content and the instructional practices needed to provide powerful and engaging instruction to students with diverse needs and interests.
School leaders will hone their abilities to instill a shared vision of academic success for every student, build talent, develop instructional leadership teams of teachers and staff, and cultivate communities of learning and support throughout each school.
As a collective, we will provide resources and supports matched to student need to ensure that all students—including those who are struggling and those who are thriving—receive what they need to develop their full academic and social potential.
District support staff will develop their competencies and improve their approach to serving schools, students, and families, and align their work in support of exceptional teaching and learning for every student.
