At the beginning of the 2009-2010 school year, the District undertook the development of a comprehensive strategic plan. With the approval of the plan in the Spring of 2010, the implementation process was begun. At that point we took the plan and developed a methodology to bring the initiatives to life.
Included in this process was the development of the District Mission Statement, which is shared below:
“By setting high expectations, teaching to the needs of learners, and embracing the richness of our cultural diversity, Fairview School District 72 creates a strong foundation for academic excellence and personal growth.”
At Fairview our primary mission is to engage students in learning that stimulates the "whole child", touching their hearts and minds. We are keenly aware of the unique strengths and abilities, learning styles, and emotional needs of every individual child placed in our care, and we strive to create learning opportunities that optimize each child's potential.
We believe students learn best when the entire learning community works together and establishes a strong and meaningful partnership. We value your input and welcome your support and involvement. As we look toward the 2010-2011 school year, we encourage you to become involved in school activities, attend monthly Board of Education meetings, and participate in District initiatives.
