WHY DISTRICT EFFECTIVENESS?
OUR PURPOSE is to create a strong link between purpose and performance in the district. Researchers make a distinction in two types of high purpose organizations. The first, "high camaraderie," describes the feeling among personnel in an organization sensing that they are doing something great, TOGETHER. The second type of purpose, "high clarity," includes leadership within an organization. Leaders with this focus excel at translating purpose into action. A statistically significant performance bump can only result within organizations that have 'purpose clarity.'
OUR VISION is to empower every student to thrive as a responsible, productive, and engaged citizen by inspiring life-long learning, civic engagement, and challenging and supporting every student to achieve his/her fullest potential by embracing the diversity of both the local and global community.
