Our Vision and Mission

Our Vision

Every student graduates prepared for college/career empowered to become a productive citizen in society.

Our Mission

Our mission at MUSD, where students always come first, is to ensure that all students have a rigorous, high-quality education which empowers them with twenty-first century skills, enabling them to be successful in college, career, and society.

Board Goals

1) Focus on Student Achievement

  • Standards/Curriculum: We will adopt standards/curriculum that clearly define what all students are expected to know and be able to do at designated grade levels.
  • Assessment: We will adopt multiple methods of assessment, including specific achievement targets, which will measure student achievement of the adopted standards/curriculum.
  • Accountability: We will report regularly to parents and the public about how our schools are progressing toward improving educational quality and student achievement. Those schools that are making progress will be rewarded. Those schools that are not progressing will be placed on an improvement plan. 

2) Build a Framework of Support for the Instructional Program

  • Quality Staff: We will strive to maintain a system that will allow us to hire and maintain good teachers and support personnel.
  • Staff Development: We will support the education and training of school staff members so that they will be able to increase student achievement of the grade level standards/curriculum and be held accountable for student performance.
  • Instructional Materials and Supplies: We will provide sufficient textbooks for all students and we will allocate funds to school sites for other materials and supplies.
  • Technological Capacity: We will support expanded use of technology as a tool for improving student achievement.
  • Financial Support: We will seek sufficient funding for school programs and provide funding to sites on an equitable basis.
  • District Support Services: We will provide district support needed to improve student achievement, including support of the instructional programs, the instructional facilities, and other needs of personnel.
  • Partnerships: We will identify and strengthen networks, partnerships, and other support structures within the K-12 system, between the K-12 system and postsecondary systems, between public education and other human service systems, and between education and the business community.   

3) Encourage Community Involvement

  • School-Based Management: We will encourage schools to utilize the school-based management approach to governance, involving the public in setting school goals and methods to improve student achievement.
  • Publicity: We will provide support to publicize information about school programs, student successes, and personnel involvement. 
  • Parent Involvement: We will encourage schools to provide opportunities for parent involvement in the education of their children, including parent education opportunities.
  • Community Support: We will encourage school and community partnerships in all areas that will improve student achievement.
