  1. What will "remarkably" look like in the classroom?

    Submitted: 12/29/09

  2. I would remove "remarkably" from the mission statement and add "socially responsible." Since not all students will be continuing their education after high school, I would combine the bullets that speak about "leaving fully prepared for their next educational challenges" and "discovering and pursuing a career, calling or direction, based on their strengths, skills, values and interests."

  3. The bullets describe "well" the total Parkway graduate...all dimensions. Add a bullet relating to "creative expression."

  4. The bullets that are listed under the mission statement are great. Technology is still missing! Question: What do we do when students don't meet these bullets? We have to hold the kids accountable just as much as the teachers.

  5. We did not think "remarkably" was the right word to use in the mission statement. We flirted with the words "exceptionally" or "outstanding." We also thought that maybe we should just use one district mission.

  6. The word "remarkably" should be "highly" or "exceptionally" - it sounds awkward as is. Each school should have one mission statement...the district mission. It should be followed by all schools because building missions would be the same thing with different wording essentially.

  7. I don't like the word "remarkably" as a word used...also, don't understand why we chose "capable, curious, confident" as descriptive words.

    I like one mission for the entire district.

  8. The results statements should all start with clear, specific verbs. The "are" statements do not sound impactful and do not give a specific, measurable action. If we can be specific with the verbs, we can then work with specific assessments and specfic measurement tools to assess student achievement of the goals. (Similarly, the goal beginning with adverbs or -ly words needs revision). The final document should create core, action verbs that flow with parallel structure (i.e. all concrete verb statements.)

  9. The mission statement should be short and concise. Simplify the first message instead of elaborating and adding to it. Edit it down. It's too wordy.

  10. My comment is in regards to the use of the word curious in both the mission and the vision statements. To me this seems similar to using a word that is being defined in the definition. Currently I read this point as Parkway develops curious learners and we succeed when our students are curious learners. Would another word be appropriate to replace curious in the vision portion? Would a statement that would indicate a students curiosity without being redundant have more weight?
