Finding Focus

  • The Whitfield County School System's Vision, Mission, and Beliefs were developed in 2005 by the System Design Team comprised of a variety of certified and classified staff. This team led the implementation of the teaching and learning framework and established the system's focus and direction. The team solicited stakeholder input throughout the process of generating the vision and goals. Initially, the superintendent presented a draft to school personnel requesting their feedback. School board members and school councils also collaborated in this process.
