Mission, Vision, & Values
With feedback from multiple stakeholders--administrators, teachers, board of education members, parents, and community residents--the Morris School District undertook a full-scale organizational introspection to define and articulate what we stand for, what we aspire to, and how we will get there. The result of this months-long exercise was a comprehensive strategic plan, The Way Forward. The complete document may be found here:
It is the mission of the Morris School District to empower each student to ascend
academically, socially, and emotionally by providing equal access to continuous
opportunities for achieving academic excellence, developing meaningful relationships, and becoming future ready.
Graduates of the Morris School District will be equipped to live a
principled and productive life where they see their connections and responsibilities to local and global communities.
We believe in community integration, exceptional instruction, global competence, and student and community wellness, and these values guide our decisions and actions throughout the District.
