JC School administrators set belief statements, focus areas
Saturday, June 23, 2012
It’s a growing truth of modern education — what happens in today’s classrooms is far different from the way teachers worked even five or 10 years ago.
So administrators in school districts throughout the nation are re-examining their existing strategic plans, to see what changes are needed to help meet the needs of today’s students.
For more than 50 Jefferson City Public Schools administrators, that review led to this week’s development of new “belief statements” to help guide all district decisions. And those belief statements also resulted in a separate discussion, during their two-day retreat, of a series of “focus” issues that district leaders will concentrate on as they work to improve education for all students.
