This fall and moving forward, Mansfield ISD is focused on making sure students are college, career and life ready through its Vision 2030 strategic plan.
Vision 2030 details the district’s mission, values, motto and guiding statements. Another major component of the strategic plan is the addition of student scorecards from all grade levels. The scorecards help students take control of their future and keep track of how well they are doing at being ready for the next phase of life through research-based indicators.
“Vision 2030 puts our priorities where they should be,” says Superintendent Dr. Kimberley Cantu. “Our students come first in every decision we make. At its heart, our strategic plan is a commitment by all of us to ensure every student is prepared for real life, a career or college by the time they graduate.”
Students in every grade level will work with their teachers and counselors to complete the tasks necessary to become productive citizens, including required achievement in reading and math as set out by Vision 2030. They’ll also be learning other lessons like developing leadership skills and exploring career options.
“We’re wanting to increase every child’s chance of success by having them see what they need to have accomplished, according to research, in order to excel at the next level,” says Dr. Sean Scott, MISD’s deputy superintendent. “Factors like attendance levels, finance courses, earning certification and/or college credit, participating in extracurricular activities – all of that will be part of the student’s scorecard, which can be pulled up at any time.”
Parents are encouraged to review the scorecard online with their child. They can watch a video explaining the student scorecard and see a sample scorecard for each student age group by visiting mansfieldisd.org/departments/curriculum-instruction/student-scorecard
