104 School District Mission Statement

104 School District Mission Statement

The purpose of this policy is to establish a clear statement of the purpose for which the school district exists. 


The School Board believes that a mission statement should be adopted. The mission statement should be based on the beliefs and values of the community, should direct any change effort and should be the basis on which decisions are made. The School Board, on behalf of and with extensive participation by the community, should develop a consensus among its members regarding the nature of the enterprise the School Board governs, the purposes it serves, the constituencies it should consider, including student representation, and the results it intends to produce. 


“The mission of SoWashCo Schools is to educate students for success”.

  1. REVIEW 

The School Board will review the school district’s mission every two years, especially when members of the board change. The school board shall conduct a comprehensive review of the mission, including the beliefs and values of the community, every five to seven years.
