Unified School District No. 232 is promoting its new Vision and Mission following formal approval by the Board of Education in May 2017. The Vision and Mission represent a successful nine-month process of engaging various stakeholder groups within the district.

Led by Superintendent Frank Harwood during the 2016-17 school year, the district hosted three community forums, launched a community-wide engagement survey, and met with students, parents, and employees to gather input regarding the direction of the school system.

“One of the most important things about leading a school district is knowing where you want to go,” said Frank Harwood. “Engaging the USD 232 community was a critical part of setting a vision and mission for our future.  The big question we must always consider is what we want our district to be for our students.”

The Vision and Mission will now drive the future goals for the district, including strategies and action steps that may be adjusted by the Board of Education from time to time to ensure the system is on track to accomplish its vision. It will take collaborative parent-school-community partnerships to support the continued success of all students in USD 232.


Maximize each student’s potential, through inspiration and discovery, challenging all students to become self-sufficient and positive contributors to society. 


USD 232 will prepare all students for their future through excellent, innovative learning opportunities with caring, dedicated and passionate staff in a safe and secure environment.
