Dundee vision: Empowering learners, leaders

DUNDEE--Dundee Central School Superintendent Kelly Houck held the school's 'vision' board meeting Thursday, March 22.
Houck started off the meeting by stating, "I shared the vision and mission statement with the board at our last meeting, and they were in full support. They really really liked it, and I anticipate them acting on it at the April meeting." The vision reads "Empowering Learners and Leaders" and the mission statement is "Inspire-Collaborate-Educate."
A handout showed some details of the tentative vision and mission for Dundee Central School. Under the "inspire" section they would like to see a 95 percent annual attendance rate, 65 percent of high school students enrolled in college-level coursework, 90 percent of seniors applying for scholarships and more. Houck stated, "we have to remember that these are goals."
A big part of the "collaborate" section is that they would like to see 80 percent of all families attend at least two school functions each academic year. One of the "events" that they are targeting are parent-teacher conferences. "There are several that don't come." Houck said, "That's why anytime that we can get them in the school where they're positively interacting with the school environment we consider that a win." Dundee has a couple social media platforms now to try to achieve some of this goal by showing people what goes on inside the school. You can follow a Dundee Central School Instagram account and Twitter account now.
Under the "educate" section there is a series of goal percentages that the school hopes to see during the annual survey. "We survey kids often." Houck stated, "so that is information that they are used to providing to us." 95 percent will have a "very positive" relationship with at least one teacher, 95 percent will "agree" or "strongly agree" they are getting helpful content from at least one class and many more. Under this section there is also some overall goals for the school of 60 percent enrolled in Advanced Placement courses, 100 percent will be reading on or above grade level and each year 100 percent of students will be getting at least one-year growth in reading level.
The adoption meeting will be April 25, where Houck will present the vision and mission to the board one last time.
