Responsible Governance

The Provo City School District Board of Education will provide leadership focused on promoting student achievement through planning, policy setting, advocacy and monitoring of performance that allows each and every student to succeed.

Creating Conditions for Student and Staff Success

  2. Employing and supporting quality teachers, administrators and other staff;
  3. Providing rigorous curriculum, technology and high quality facilities;
  4. Ensuring management of the organization; and
  5. Adopting and monitoring an annual budget that allocates resources based on the district’s vision, goals and priorities for learning.

High Expectations for Student Learning

The board will adopt a collaboratively developed district plan focused on learning and achievement for all students. The district’s plan will communicate high expectations for student learning and set clear plans for meeting those expectations. The board will continuously articulate the belief that all students can learn and that each student’s learning can improve regardless of existing circumstances or resources. The board will act as leaders of a vision of shared learning that is supported by individual schools and the community.

District Accountability for Student Learning

The plan adopted by the district will demonstrate the district’s commitment to continuous improvement in student achievement at each school and throughout the district, the board’s commitment to evaluating the superintendent on clear and focused expectations, and its commitment to measuring student academic progress and needs based on valid and reliable assessments.

Community Engagement
