Vision, Mission, and Guiding Principles
All Means All
All staff focus on success for all students. There are many pathways and opportunities for students to learn, achieve, and celebrate their intellectual, creative, personal, and future success.
Collaboration and Civil Discourse
The organization works collaboratively and creatively to ensure student success in a supportive environment. Decisions are made with stakeholder input and participation. Critical thinking, collegial dialogue and civil discourse around challenging problems are expected. Successes are recognized and celebrated.
Culture of Care and Safety
Schools and all district work sites are safe and secure environments for students, parents, and staff. SLCUSD focuses on the social-emotional needs of our students, values students’ voices, and creates nurturing and inclusive school communities. Students, staff and families are compassionate school community members.
Expectations for students, parents, and staff are clearly defined, understood, and shared. Students, parents, and staff are empowered, supported, and provided training and professional development opportunities to meet expectations. SLCUSD creates learning environments that empower students to take ownership over their learning in order for them to find purpose, meaning, and joy in their education and to excel beyond high school.
Staff, students, and parents collaboratively evaluate progress using multiple, reliable measures, and make changes when necessary.
Respect and Integrity
Communication and interactions among and between students, staff, and parents is defined by mutual respect, trust, empathy, and support. SLCUSD strives to create a safe space for students to learn about themselves, other people, and the world around them.
