A new mission statement for Lake Shore Central School District
Wednesday September 11, 2013 | By:Alicia Greco, The Sun staff reporter | News
LAKE SHORE — The Lake Shore Central School Board addressed only two topics on its list of discussion, during the Sept. 5 meeting.
The first was the proposed update to the district’s current vision mission statements. This idea has already been discussed by the board a few times. A committee worked to develop and successfully come up with a new statement for the district.
The old statement read, “Lake Shore Central School District prepares all students to become successful life-long learners who contribute to a diverse global society.”
The new statement, which still needs board approval, is as follows: “The Lake Shore Central School District, in partnership with our students, families and the school community, will cultivate engaging, diverse and challenging educational opportunities and learning environments, throughout our schools, to promote success and achievement for high school graduation and beyond.”
The board members removed the vision statement discussion from the agenda, because they were not ready, according to Kristine DeMartino, district clerk to the school.
In other board news:
– Mark Gardner, who has been involved with Lake Shore’s energy education and conservation efforts, will be involved with future presentations to the board.
– There was a confirmed board of education building visitation schedule:
– A.J. Schmidt Elementary School at 5:45 p.m. on Oct. 1.
– J.T. Waugh Elementary School at 5:45 p.m. on Nov. 5.
– Highland Elementary School at 5:45 p.m. on Dec. 3.
– Middle school at 5:45 p.m. on Feb. 4.
– Senior high school at 5:45 p.m. on April 1.
– There was a development of a schedule of presentations. According to DeMartino, the board is provided with a list of departments within the school and the agenda is then reviewed with what members ask to hear about, during the school year.
The schedule for the academic year 2013 – 2014 is as follows:
– Oct. 1: Public relations.
– Nov. 5: Business office (CBO/human relations).
– Dec. 3: Annual Professional Performance Review.
– Feb. 4: District website.
– April 1: Superintendent’s evaluation (executive session).
The next regular board meeting will be held at 7 p.m. on Sept. 17.
