Mission, Goals & Policies
Sheridan County School District No. 2 faculty, staff, and administration are dedicated to preparing every student with the skills, knowledge, and attitudes needed for success.
Resources Utilization Goal
SCSD #2 will continue to recruit and retain high quality teachers and staff. Model professional development programs, with the support of Professional Learning Communities (PLC), which build teachers’ capacity for success and learning for all students, will be used to develop and upgrade our teachers and staff. The District has established and will continue to improve its training programs for all teachers as a support system and to meet the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) mandates for highly qualified teachers. SCSD #2 will continuously monitor the financial aspects of the District.
Teaching and Learning Goal
SCSD #2 will continuously promote student learning as the primary focus of every staff member in the school district. The Board of Trustees is committed to helping all students reach their potential both academically and in many other aspects of human endeavor. This goal is at the center of the board’s philosophy, policy, and action.
Leadership Capacity Goal
SCSD #2 will exhibit and monitor the district role in promoting academically-focused leadership. The Board of Trustees believes that, as a public entity, the District is responsible to the Sheridan community to model and provide governance and leadership that is consistent and coherent. Board policy needs to be congruent with administrative priorities and procedures. There should be a feedback loop to ensure the ongoing evaluation and refinement of the degree to which board policy is implemented with fidelity and results. The Board of Trustees holds regular and proactive communication with stakeholders as a top priority, including communication from Trustees and district administration.
SCSD #2 will foster ongoing and timely communication with stakeholders. The Board of Trustees believes that as a public entity responsible for the learning of youth, the District must actively communicate with students, parents/guardians, district personnel, and the public.
