Board Policy 2020 Ends Monitoring

2020MissionVision The Mercer Island School District's Board of Directors systemically measures the district's attainment of Board Policy 2020. On an annual planning calendar established by the Board, the superintendent must show reasonable progress toward organizational accomplishment of the Board's 2020 Policy annually.

The Board monitors these policies both quantitatively and qualitatively. Monitoring the fundamentals allows the Board and the community to contextualize how our educational programs are “benchmarking” toward the six fundamentals that drive the district’s 2020 Vision that says, “Our students will thrive in the cognitive, digital, and global world while sustaining their passion and inspiration for learning.”

This page contains historical monitoring documents for the six fundamentals of Board Policy 2020.
