The is the narrative for the Warren District Framework to set the direction of the district’s future focus and the elements that frame it. The framework itself consists of five elements embedded in the districts’ continuous improvement model of plan, do, check, and act. The elements are: 1) Vision and Purpose; 2) Core Values; 3) District Focus; 4) Mission; and 5) Goals. Note that purpose drives goal settings and action in a concrete and less abstract way than most district vision statements, from the board to the classroom. The core values establish the parameters of action and the pursuit of district goals to serve as a means of preventing distraction from the driving purpose of district intent. The district focus is a restatement of the board goals clearly identified for all to see and understand. The mission serves as the rallying cry of the district’s chief resource—its people—to innovate constantly—to educate all to high levels—and to inspire each and every one to lead a rich and fulfilling life—purpose again is emphasized here.
