Help Select Our New Mission & Vision Statements

Based on conversations with staff members and parents across the district, the statements in the link below are representative of what many have described to be the mission and vision of Englewood Schools. Now, we would like your feedback on which vision statement and which mission statement Englewood Schools should adopt for the future. (Note: A vision statement expresses an organization's optimal goal and aspiration, while a mission statement provides an overview of the group's plans to realize that vision.)

    Update on Negotiations

    The Englewood Educators and the District Negotiations Teams met on March 17, 2016 for the first negotiations session of the spring. In this session, the Teams discussed and clarified the language issues that would be bargained this year. These issues are:
    1. EE Issue: How do we improve teachers’ ability to consistently prepare and deliver rigorous engaging instruction that will positively impact achievement?
    2. District issue: How might we continue to have flexibility for the increased planning time and for creating an annual plan to address schedules for individual planning time, collaborative planning time, and data team work, as it currently set forth in Appendix G (Memorandum of Understanding Regarding Article 25 – Planning Time (2015-1016)) for the 2015-2016 school year, which will expire on July 31, 2016?
    The Teams are utilizing an interest-based bargaining structure to discuss the issues. The teams started the collaboration process with EE’s issue.

    The Teams are looking to have a budget workshop at an upcoming session and plan to discuss District finances.

    The next session for the Teams will be on March 31, 2016.
