1.30 - School District Philosophy/Mission

The mission of Consolidated High School District #230, a student-oriented center of learning, is to graduate young adults prepared to realize their life-long potential in an ever-changing world. We accomplish this through a shared commitment to core values.

Core Values

Student Centered: Our schools maintain a learner-oriented climate which emphasizes high expectations for all students. We strive to help all students meet their potential by providing comprehensive education, co-curricular and support programs. Policies and programs of the district are designed to create paths of opportunity, and progress on key indicators of student success is the first priority of the district.

Mutual Respect: Our schools actively engage staff, parents, and community partners in legitimate dialogue to add valuable impact and ongoing improvement. Decision-making processes and communications methods demonstrate mutual respect and integrity and are driven by opportunity to affect change.

Human Potential: Human potential of all staff is recognized, developed and respected. Ongoing staff development is aligned to system goals and driven by measured needs. Staff satisfaction aligned to the goals of the district is regularly assessed and reported.

Continuous Improvement: A continuous improvement organizational planning model is implemented to meet the changing needs of our students and community. Continuous improvement is characterized by data-driven decision-making, by a process orientation to problem solving, and by sharing knowledge on research-based programs throughout the organization.

Resource Efficiency: Our school system demonstrates resource efficiency in budgets and facilities. The budgeting model emphasizes value-added (cost benefits) approaches and encourages innovation. Facilities are maintained to assure safety and efficiency, and facilities programming creates equitable opportunity for students and access for community partners.
