“The mission statement can serve as the vital lifeblood of the school’s daily activities and policies. It should be fundamental to every decision at every level. An effective mission statement expresses the school’s purpose-its essential reason for education in the first place. It expresses why a school EXISTS.”- Alan M. Blankstein

 

Effective Mission Statements

  1. The mission of school is clear.
  2. The mission states exactly what students are to learn.
  3. The mission is measurable. (How will we know if students have learned?)
  4. The mission provides for failure. (What will we do if students don’t learn?}
