Portrait of a Graduate

The best way to predict your future is to create it~
Abraham Lincoln
During the spring of the 2022-2023 school year, approximately 80 stakeholders (parents, students, staff and community partners)  shared their perspective on what students need for success in this rapidly changing world. These stakeholders helped the District identify what core competencies are most important in our community for our students to master before graduating. In addition, the group assisted with defining each competency to ensure they become an integral part of teaching and learning in our district. A Portrait of a Graduate allows staff to prioritize these essential skills and qualities; it places the students at the heart of our work; and it serves as the focal point for the District’s strategic planning.

Creating the Portrait was just the first step and this coming year, we are excited to take this compelling vision-setting work to the next level.
