Statement of Purpose
In October 2015, the Kaukauna Area School District launched its District Vision Committee (DVC), created to engage our school community in a continuous improvement process, meeting monthly to examine the current reality of our district’s culture, fiscal sustainability and student achievement, and how they relate to our vision for the district – where we want to be. We’ll then explore the necessary steps to get from the reality to the vision.
KASD, in partnership with our community, will provide a rigorous and relevant curriculum through best instructional practices, which emphasize student achievement, accountability, delivered in a safe and caring environment.
Our Goal: Answer the question “How will we accomplish this?”
Step 1: Educate
Who are we? This step is grounded in learning what the current reality of the District is in relationship to our three goals: culture, fiscal sustainability and student achievement. We’ll have examine, evaluate and present perceptions and realities for each of these goals.
Step 2: Vision
What do we want to become? In step two, we apply the information that we learned during step one, and visualize a new or improved educational system of services for the future to improve student and staff achievement.
Step 3: Explore and Prioritize
What can KASD do? During this step, we’ll prioritize the elements of our current vision that are attainable in relation to our district’s goals.
Step 4: Action
How will we accomplish the vision? Finally, in step four, we’ll develop a plan for implementation of each of the action steps to get from our current reality to our district vision. This step also includes development and submission of a recommendation to the Board of Education for potential action.
