Our Commitment to Our Community

Inspiring students to learn, empowering students for life. is the mission statement in ϲ. To support this mission, we must acknowledge the social, emotional, and academic needs of each student. Students must be safe, healthy, engaged, and challenged to experience academic excellence. Through our Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS), we employ a data-based decision making process to identify and align to the unique needs of each student as well as to continuously study our systems and practices to improve our efforts.

The purpose of MTSS within ϲ is to:

  • Create a culture of excellence, empowerment, and equity
  • Provide all students with instruction and support systems to achieve and maintain high levels of academic success and social and emotional well being
  • Prioritize the work of continuous improvement to meet our goals and ensure our educational system results in success for all students

At the district and at each campus, leadership teams create structures to continuously monitor student progress. The needs of our students, community, campuses, teachers, and district is our top priority. We actively seek to gain insight from data, and turn insight into action.
