Much work has been completed over the last year to ensure we are meeting our mission to best prepare students for the world that awaits them after graduation. Educators and support staff have worked diligently to promote critical thinking and student inquiry while closing achievement gaps to ensure everyone can achieve success.
We began the new school year focused on developing our new strategic plan to help guide our actions over the next five years. Through a comprehensive consultation process, we received feedback from more than 2,700, who shared with us their vision for Limestone.
The third year of our four-year term was indeed a milestone year for Limestone. Our Board of Trustees remained focused on student achievement and well-being and making decisions that benefit the entire district. We are proud of the work we have completed with our staff colleagues and community partners to ensure that all of our students have equal opportunities to reach their maximum potential.
Working closely with Senior Staff, the Board directed resources in a manner that best supports staff’s operational priorities and the renewed vision and values of Trustees. As part of the development of the Board’s new strategic plan, Trustees created a new vision statement – Together we embrace and foster engaging and innovative learning where everyone achieves success and well-being.
