Board Goals

Revised: 1-17-18

  1. Student.  Every student will participate in a rigorous, relevant and innovative curriculum and will experience high quality instruction every day that engages, challenges and prepares them to thrive in a globally competitive and information-rich environment.  Students will graduate from LLESD well prepared for high school and beyond, as resilient learners, effective problem-solvers and caring, involved citizens who contribute productively to their communities.

  2. Teaching.  Teaching in every classroom will be effective, engaging, relevant and responsive to the evolving needs of our students.  District leaders will focus attention on student learning and on developing coherent curriculum and consistent instruction within and across grade levels and subject areas so that each student in our district will have an effective and engaging learning experience that meets the district’s high standards of excellence.  

  3. Learning Environment.   Attend to the emotional, physical well-being and safety of all students and staff through the ongoing maintenance of existing facilities as well as the design, development and implementation of the facilities master plan.  Foster a district-wide culture of learning in which professionals and students are supported to take risks, to work collaboratively, to reflect on their learning and to continuously grow and develop.

  4. Community.  Educate the Las Lomitas Elementary School District parent community and the surrounding community about the work that LLESD is engaged in and regularly seek out their feedback and ideas about how the district can better achieve its goals.  Involve and engage all community stakeholders in supporting and sustaining the district’s work, particularly the district’s goal to develop graduates who are caring and involved citizens.

  5. Fiscal.  Maintain and adopt policies that ensure fiscally responsible use of district resources to support student learning and other district goals while attending to the short and long term financial stability of the district.
