Why, What, How: Crafting Vision, Mission, and Value
February 16, 2012- 4 - 6 p.m. Presenter: Jeff Sands, Senior Manager of School Development
At the core of every high-quality public charter school are a series of statements that define the school's identity and work. Often overlooked as merely symbolic, strong and clear Vision, Mission and Values statements have a powerful effect on families, staff, funders and the larger community, propelling the school toward continual improvement and innovation.
This workshop will provide a clear definition and understanding of these critical statements, as well as the steps for creating them. Once completed, these statements provide context and purpose for the rest of the charter petition and the writing process.
