District Vision

Johnson County District Vision

At the Johnson County Schools, we are committed to our vision of the highest levels of teaching and learning, supported by these four critical elements:

Collaborative Culture:

  • Collaboration is purposeful, constant and regularly scheduled, where everyone works as a team, sharing both instructionally successful ideas and challenges between and across grade levels.
  • Parents/guardians are willing, knowledgeable, and active partners in the learning process to support student success.

Quality Instruction:

  • Instruction is a reflection of the teacher’s high expectations for students and the teacher’s deep understanding of the grade level content.
  • Teachers model a love for learning and show their belief in students by creating a positive environment where success is possible.
  • Students show their success and learning in a variety of ways, creating relevant work and tasks which give a complete picture of their progress.

Resource Utilization and Development:

  • Research-based resources for all subject areas are consistently available for teachers to use in student interventions and enrichment.
  • Technology is regularly and effectively implemented in classrooms to support deep levels of student learning.
  • Professional development is ongoing and includes regular support, resources, and follow up to require classroom implementation to strengthen student success.

Leadership for Change:

  • There are written and consistent guidelines and procedures to provide ways of sharing important information throughout all levels of school and district work.
  • The district develops teacher leadership to promote quality and cohesive instruction, and a continual focus on students.
  • Leaders view teacher effectiveness primarily in terms of student success.
