The mission of the Westside Community School District, as an innovative educational system, is to ensure academic excellence and to serve the unique needs of all learners.
Working with its stakeholders, the District in 2014 began the process of updating its strategic plan.
The District settled on three core strategies:
• Core Strategy 1: Provide quality instruction by integrating literacy skills, creative and critical thinking, and authentic problem solving.
• Core Strategy 2: Support personalized learning with opportunities for students and staff to discover strengths through choice while fostering community and global partnerships.
• Core Strategy 3: Enhance all educational experiences by integrating new and existing technologies in a meaningful way.
The core strategies were developed by a design team comprised of staff members from a variety of curricular areas and grade levels. District and building action steps are aligned with the core strategies; they developed annually and shared with staff.
Strategic planning is an ongoing process of continuous improvement that allows Westside Community Schools to remain focused on its broad goals and priorities.
