DRAFT PARKWAY MISSION STATEMENT #5 (February 2, 2010)

MISSION: The mission of the Parkway School District is to ensure students are capable, curious and confident learners who are well-equipped to understand and respond to the challenges of an ever-changing world.

VISION
We succeed when all our students and graduates are:

  • able to transfer their prior learning to new demands, in and out of school
  • fully prepared for their next educational challenges
  • creative, thoughtful and effective problem solvers
  • increasingly self-directed, skilled and persistent as learners
  • literate and critical consumers of information and ideas
  • articulate speakers and effective listeners
  • acting out of a strong sense of personal, social and civic responsibility
  • always seeking to understand the views, values and cultures of others
  • working skillfully with others to achieve common goals
  • appreciative of the role the arts play in their lives and culture
  • clear on a direction or calling they seek to pursue

LEARNING PRINCIPLES
People learn best when they:

  • know their teachers believe they can learn and succeed
  • contribute as respected members of the learning community
  • are engaged in learning experiences that match their needs and interests
  • find personal meaning and relevance in the learning
  • are challenged to construct new knowledge by building on and accessing their current knowledge
  • accept rigorous but achievable goals and multiple ways to accomplish them
  • continually self-assess their work and learning through reflection and goal-setting
  • receive feedback on their work and act upon that feedback
  • are free to test ideas, take intellectual risks and make mistakes in pursuit of understanding
  • understand the outcomes of their learning and the standards required for success
  • are provided time to make meaning of content and persist with challenging, intellectual work
