Dawson Springs Independent School District-  Potential District Mission Statement, Vision and Motto

As many of you know, we have been working on this for several months in response to our KDE audit last year. One of the three priorities from KDE revolved around our District having a "current" Mission and Vision Statement. In addition to a prior survey many of you filled out on this project, I have spoken to and worked directly with many of our student leaders, all of our focus groups...student, certified staff, classified staff, parent, business and community leader, our Admin Team, and many others. After discussions and various revisions, the Mission Statement, Vision and Motto below is what we came up with. All the discussions were very robust and this is hopefully our final attempt to "vet" and finalize our Mission Statement, Vision and Motto. I do believe these "fit us" and focus on current educational goals and objectives. Please review and answer the questions below regarding these proposed statements and motto.
