We recognize that a public school
district must set the standard for community involvement,
and it must prepare our children to live and work in an
ever-changing global society. We believe that we do our
best work when we draw upon the wealth of talent within our
District 7 community of learners.
We expect high quality, experiential
academics, performing arts, and athletic programs to exist
throughout the school district. We expect that our students
will be offered numerous quality programs that provide them
with opportunities to learn and grow through the exploration
and application of ideas.
We remain committed to hiring and
developing quality educators and staff who embrace ongoing
professional development that inspires them to attain deeper
and enhanced knowledge of the content they are expected to
teach to our students. And as a result of this commitment,
our students will be offered a rich K-12 school environment
that is the norm rather than the exception.
We are fortunate to have educators who
are dedicated to the ideal of student-centered education.
This is reflected in their own pursuit of excellence, their
embrace of innovation, and the regard in which they are held
by their colleagues throughout the region and the state.
