VISION FOR DISD AS PERCEIVED BY BOARD OF TRUSTEES:
I see a time in the future where • • • • • • •
All stakeholders and patrons will view the district as having purpose with consistency. This will be evidenced by campuses which exhibit safety, control and discipline as guiding principles. Child-focused leadership will be evident to all as each child is able to develop to his/her best through challenging offerings. Curriculum/program review/ improvement will be continuous and will result in rigorous programs, improved student achievement results, and other improvements which may be measured via established assessment means.
All space needs will be met with facilities conducive to learning. These facilities will provide the necessary technology and resources to insure the potential for excellence. The District’s focus on providing attractive and functional facilities will set the stage for the campuses to develop an excellent learning and working environment which will display an atmosphere of teamwork and “family”. In this arena the staff will accept the accountability standards while strengthening relationships, improving communications and insuring the best possible instructional program. As a result the district will be able to attract and retain quality staff. Staff members will be interacting freely and continuously with each other, parents and patrons.
The district will have a compensation plan that is affordable and effective while addressing significant concerns with a predictable, reliable revenue stream.
The district is recognized by all to be an exemplary school district.
