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. Pursuant to an annual planning calendar established by the Board, the superintendent must show reasonable progress toward organizational accomplishment of the Fundamentals set forth in Board Policy 2020.

    The Board monitors these Fundamentals both quantitatively and qualitatively. Monitoring the Fundamentals allows the Board and the community to contextualize how our educational programs are “benchmarking” its progress toward these Fundamentals and 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.”
