Strategic Priorities

Beliefs and Practices

We believe student learning and growth is our common goal, students learn best when they are engaged, students learn in a variety of ways and at different rates, students need practice and feedback before being expected to demonstrate learning, students need to develop habits of work, and professionals use evidence from student work, behavior, and feedback to inform decisions.

Background and Development Process

In fall 2022, the district gathered additional input and feedback through a community survey, and School Board meetings and workshops. In October, the School Board and District Leadership Team hosted a community informational workshop and discussion focusing on three of the five strategic priorities grounded in the Falmouth Public Schools Mission, Vision, and Beliefs & Practices (Connected Community, Social Emotional Learning, and Curriculum & Instruction). This presentation and feedback session was another important step before formally adopting our Strategic Vision.
