Proposed PCSC Corporation Vision Statement

The Board met in a work session last week to review the mission statement, core values and to craft a vision statement. All administrators, principals, and representatives of the teacher's association were invited to be directly involved in the work session.

Rather that creating a Strategic Plan that collects dust on a shelf, the Plymouth School Board has chosen to plan strategically in order to bring continuous quality improvement to Plymouth Community School Corporation. The first reading of the new Vision Statement was presented at the Board meeting last night. A final version will be voted on during the October 14, 2010 meeting at 7:00 p.m. in the Administration Board Room.

Plymouth School Corporation's Vision is...
To Provide...
Cutting Edge Curriculum...
Premier Programs...
Caring Community...
