Our goals for the future

How we're measuring progress toward Destination 2020


In order to meet our vision and fulfill our mission, the district must be committed to strategic initiatives and encompassing goals. Goals are SMART – specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and timely.


We use performance measures to evaluate our efforts. Each of our goals contains multiple one or more performance measures which use data and statistical evidence to determine progress. The Destination 2020 report compiled each year by the Assessment & Evaluation Department, reports on the progress within each performance measure and whether or not targets were met.
