EIC Mission Statement Keywords

  1. 1. Now what? We have a mission statement and a logo Will it be transformational , but will it live and breathe or die ? ? We are working from our current reality follows… toward an ideal state of planning, which should flow as Mission: Denton ISD: Empowering lifelong learners to be engaged citizens who positively impact their local and global community. ↓ Vision ↓ Values ↓ Goals: Board Goals: Denton ISD Board Goals ↓ District Goals: To be developed ↓ Campus Goals: Submitted in Document Tracking online template ↓ Teacher Goals ↓ Student Goals Yesterday, the EIC took our work to the next level in working toward this alignment. The goal is to achieve this ideal state and flow by April 2014. While awaiting full alignment and flow, we are working toward incorporating small wins along the way in 2013-14 by focusing on 1 big rock . To this end, the EIC identified and discussed 6 keywords from the mission. Denton ISD: Empowering lifelong learners to be engaged citizens who positively impact their local and global community. The plan is to choose 1 of the keywords from the mission statement and let it drive our discussions, our work, our plans, etc. and look for measurable evidence of it on our campuses and in our district departments.
  2. 2. For example, let’s say the keyword selected was “local and global community.” At the October EIC Meeting, our topic, “curriculum and staff development,” won’t simply focus on what we’ve “done” or “will do” (i.e. “What staff development do we offer in Denton ISD?”), it will be shared and discussed through the lens of how curriculum and staff development prepare students for the “local and global community” at both the district and campus levels. With your help, we will choose the 1 word upon which we will focus in 2013-14. The EIC narrowed the 6 down to 3. Now it’s your turn… Of all the mission statement keywords, which one should we focus upon? Please vote for the 1 statement keyword you believe Denton ISD should emphasize and focus upon by Sunday, September 29. • empowering (empower) • lifelong learners (lifelong learning) • engaged (engagement) “You cannot hold people accountable for what you have not made explicit.” Larry Lezotte
