On October 2, 2017, the Board of Trustees reaffirmed the following Guiding Goals and accompanying descriptions which serve as the overarching vision for the Lowell Joint School District.  

 

DISTRICT GOAL 1:  ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE - LEARNING FOR ALL STUDENTS

Vision:  Every student experiences educational success at the highest levels of achievement.  We believe that each student has a unique ability to learn in an environment that is enriched with a challenging curriculum, where learning is modeled and expectations are both known and high.  We expect all students to demonstrate continued and improved academic achievement, through Collaboration, Communication, Critical thinking, and Creativity, to be college and career ready, and to become lifelong learners.

 

DISTRICT GOAL 2:  SAFE, ORDERLY, POSITIVE, RESPECTFUL LEARNING ENVIRONMENTS

Vision:  All campuses provide an aesthetic, orderly environment that is organized to ensure learning.  We believe in a collaborative spirit of place where all feel safe, welcomed, valued, and respected.  We foster a culture that promotes the emotional health, safety, well-being and involvement of students, staff, family and community.

 

DISTRICT GOAL 3:  HIGH QUALITY STAFF PROVIDING HIGH QUALITY SERVICE

Vision:  All staff possesses the appropriate knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to provide high quality services leading to high quality results.  We believe that high quality service is achieved when staff is well trained, proactive, responsive, and collaborative.  We attract, train, and retain high performing staff that actively engage, collaborate, and support students in effective instruction and the use of current technologies.

 

DISTRICT GOAL 4:  SCHOOL/ FAMILY/ COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIPS & COMMUNICATION

Vision:  High quality student learning is supported by partnerships.  We believe these partnerships are enhanced through effective communication and collaboration.  We establish a culture which encourages positive relationships among our students, staff, and families as well as educational, business, and community partners.  We believe these partnerships and communication must be nurtured to optimize opportunities for learning ad personal growth for students.

 

DISTRICT GOAL 5: ACQUISITION & ALLOCATION OF RESOURCES TO SUPPORT FISCAL EXCELLENCE

Vision: Resources are focused to achieve district goals.  We believe that public schools deserve sufficient resources to achieve high quality student learning.  We believe that efficiency, transparency, and cost-effective practices must characterize District and school operations to ensure that resources are aligned and applied to achieve established goals.  We are committed to remaining fiscally solvent by effectively managing resources and pursuing new revenue sources.
