Organizations do not become great by accident. Greatness is a result of commitment, hard work, and truly intentional practice. Solana Beach School District has been one of California’s top districts for many years as a result of these amazing qualities. Another quality that makes for high performing organizations is the ability to adapt during changing times. Our district is in the process of refocusing and reinvigorating itself through the design of a new mission and vision.
To put it in simple terms, a mission statement reflects the reason why an organization exists. In turn, the vision statement reflects what we want to become. Both of these ideas become the foundation for everything we are, everything we stand for, and everything we strive to accomplish. A clear mission and vision will impact all we do as a school district now and into the future. This is why the work we are currently doing to create a new mission and vision for the district is so important.
Over the course of this school year, teachers, staff, administrators, parents, and community members have been engaged in this critical task. Meetings entitled Imagining our Vivid Vision, have already taken place in October and November with future meetings scheduled following the new year. It has been a tremendous pleasure engaging in this work and I am excited to see the direction we set for the school district as a result of these focused efforts. If you have not read our press releases about these meetings, they are accessible at https://www.sbsd.k12.ca.us/Page/9295.
In short time, I will be able to report our new mission and vision to our Solana Santa Fe School community. I am confident these statements will hold significance to all of our stakeholders, especially our staff and students who will be living these words every day. Through the design of a strong mission and vision, our school and district will work with purpose and focus now and for years to come.
