Over the summer school officials met to review the mission statement of previous years and decided it was time for a change. Our previous mission statement was "The Mission of Charlotte Valley Central School District is to create a learning environment that challenges and motivates each student to become a self-sufficient, cooperative, responsible and attributing members of a global society while encouraging each to achieve his or her highest potential." This was felt to be too long, busy, too much and not direct enough. So the officials worked together to create a new statement around the six core beliefs. Students first, trust, ownership, communication, collaboration, and growth mindset. These core beliefs are the reason we show up every morning. After a long discussion, the new mission statement was created and then came "Empowering students today to conquer the challenges of tomorrow". This new mission statement is meant to encourage students to strive for bigger things, to become well rounded individuals, and work hard for what they believe in; so as students, lets help to achieve what the new mission statement encourages!
