Schools as Neighborhood Learning Centers
The Vision 2020 sees our schools as true neighborhood learning centers, where on campus student learning extends beyond the school site to benefit the surrounding neighborhoods they serve.
The plan will seek to link neighborhood schools with community in new ways, through expanded partnerships with social service agencies and businesses. Services will be uniquely designed to each communities needs.
The Vision 2020 sets the following goals
- Schools will be safe, attractive neighborhood centers supporting learning and interaction for citizens of all ages.
- Neighborhood schools will promote growth though increased community participation and integration into the neighborhood, resulting in increased attendance by neighborhood students.
- Schools and clusters will have the flexibility to establish instructional strategies designed to assure the success of each student. The district will hold schools accountable to meet standards.
- Schools will extend beyond the fence with broadband connections to allow home learning and collaboration with other schools.
