Create safe, caring, and culturally responsive classrooms and schools, and partner with families and the community to support students’ academic growth and their social, physical and emotional wellbeing.
Ensure that every student engages in a rigorous curriculum that is implemented consistently within and across schools;
Provide inclusive instruction that engages every student in authentic learning experiences, demonstrates the power of effective effort and fosters inquiry, creativity and positive risk taking;
Monitor student progress diagnostically and plan instruction after thorough and thoughtful data analysis to ensure each student reaches proficiency;
Then all students will:
Demonstrate academic growth in foundational content and skills;
Communicate effectively, think critically, problem solve creatively, work collaboratively, and evaluate objectively;
Be self-directed and persevering agents of their own learning; and
Demonstrate cultural awareness, an appreciation of self, empathy toward others, a sense of responsibility, and commitment to civic engagement . . .
So that all students are prepared to:
Be lifelong learners able to pursue their personal and professional goals;
Face adversity and ambiguity with intellectual skill, open-mindedness, adaptability, courage and confidence;
Make informed, just and ethical decisions; and
Be connected and compassionate citizens who contribute to a diverse and global society.
