A Path to Success for Every Student
To prepare students for the new world they will face in the years ahead, the San Diego Unified school District has developed a focused, long-term plan for student success culminating in the graduation of the Class of 2020.
Since 2009 the Board of Education has worked with district academic leaders to develop Vision 2020 for Educational Excellence. Lasting transformation of education does not result from short term reforms, which is why the Board has chosen to focus this plan on the Year 2020.
All San Diego students will graduate with the skills, motivation, curiosity and resilience to succeed in their choice of college and career in order to lead and participate in the society of tomorrow.
The Vision 2020 plan foresees a very different school system by the year 2020. The overarching goal of the plan is to ensure a quality educational experience for today's students as well as the students who will graduate in the year 2020.
The Vision will create a school district that…
- Demonstrates national and international leadership through educational innovation and student achievement, contributing to a viable, stable economy, clean environment and community participation.
- Continually attracts and retains the best and most experienced employees with competitive salaries and benefits.
- Operates efficiently, effectively, transparently and democratically.
- Actively engages all parents, staff and citizens resulting in a high level of community confidence and a willingness to invest boldly in public.
