We need to be a school district that prepares all students to be productive members of society. We need to expose our students to the real world and help them see that the world is bigger than our very small community. We need to ensure that all students have the opportunity to succeed and reach their goals. We need be a school with a pluralistic culture. Our students need to be culturally competent and have a good understanding of diversity. We need to promote the acceptance and celebration of people from all walks of life. We need to develop a supportive atmosphere where students feel they can express their beliefs freely without prejudice or judgment.
This combined with the achievement related goals and social values become the basis of the schools mission statement.
Identifies skills, theories of change, program designs, partnerships, and ways of building schools where students achieve.
The plan outlines five goals that we have found for our school district. These goals show our commitment to provide the highest possible standards of education for all students in our district and to ensure the fair and equitable treatment of all members of our community. We consider understanding individual differences in each student and teacher so that we can adopt the appropriate programs of study for them of the utmost importance.
While a business would either undergo a quick or gradual, constant adaptation to its changing and competitive environment, there are certain core ideas that would stay the same and provide guidance in the process of strategic decision making (www.capsim.com.). These unchanging ideals are known as the business vision. The business vision statement comprised of three main components; core values, core purpose and visionary goals (www.quickmba.com). Core values are those that would remain unchanged regardless of time, current industry environment and any management trends. Core values are the building blocks of a company and are consisted of those values which strongly hold by the company. Core purpose is the reason that
As mentioned in my post, our school does not have its’ own vision statement rather there is one vision representative of the district. I certainly agree that it is beneficial for teachers to highlight how the school is striving to achieve its’ vision and it is essential to provide indicators of those goals for each grade or department level. For a vision to be achieved, constituents need to understand what actions they should perform to help the community achieve it. Additionally, I noticed both of our visions focused on, “... helping students to become productive members of society…”. The vision of my district is as follows: “The Scotch Plains-Fanwood School District educates and empowers our community of individual learners to be successful citizens of the world.” Both visions emphasize students becoming an integral part of society. I was curious: How does your school prepare students to participate in society through lessons or school initiatives? Following your inquiry into the company and school’s visions, how do you foresee the district designing class experiences to achieve its’

My case study begins with my search for the school’s mission and vision statements. The mission statement is the most essential part of an organization. It must be simple, clear and well-crafted message suggesting the essence of who we are, what we do and why we do it. In other words, the mission statement is the purpose of the organization which should capture the attention of your target market by standing out above all others in similar organizations. I started this case study assignment seeking the mission statement for Greenland Pines Elementary in the Duval County Schools District. First, I searched the Internet for the school’s website for information regarding school’s mission statement. The purpose of this search is to find evidence of the existence of the mission and vision statement. On the website, I found that this school had the vision and mission combined. Greenland Pines Elementary Mission/Vision Statement reads as follows:
Leithwood and Jantzi argue the ability to articulate a clear vision is an essential attribute for school leaders (2008, p. 507). Goal setting is a powerful motivator for change and when leaders are able to clearly communicate inspiration vision to those they lead, it is possible to harness this motivation to bring about school improvement in student learning (Leithwood & Jantzi, 2008, p.507). Clearly defined goals encourage school community to contribute to common goals and also streamlines decision making as only options that align with the vision need to be considered (Hallinger, 2010, p.129).
The ways in which the aims of this mission are going to be achieved will be specifically outlined in the vision statement provided. The importance of hitting our mark is paramount, for our children are our future, and making sure that they are successful, competitive citizens should be our highest concern. Sometimes this process can be more challenging when put into practice.

School improvement is transformation. It is one of the most important actions of a school. It is a process that schools must use with fidelity to ensure that at all students are given the opportunity to perform and achieve at exemplary levels. School improvement is vital to schools and it is a process that cannot be done in isolation. It requires team work, collaboration, and constant analysis of data and setting of goals. School improvement goals focus on how to meet the needs of students. Addressing the educational needs, funding, and achievement gaps between subgroups is collaborative effort involves everyone that has a vested interest in the schools. These basic measures set the foundation for improvement. And so, if it is the
