Strategic Change Agenda 2022-2027
Mission, Vision, Beliefs, and Commitments
During the 2020-2021 school year York School District One engaged in a process to foster the design and development of a support system that builds capacity, advances learning outcomes, and creates a shared understanding aligned with the district's mission, vision, beliefs, and board priorities. A variety of stakeholders engaged in a process to help identify the district's strengths and areas of future focus.
Our mission is to cultivate a service-oriented community of learners who strive for personal growth and excellence as communicators, collaborators, creators, and critical thinkers.
