WCPSS students will demonstrate high academic growth; by 2014, all students will graduate on-time prepared to compete globally.
(Adopted December 2, 2008, by the Wake County Board of Education)
Every part of this goal is a serious responsibility. Our schools and I are held accountable for ensuring that every child -- your child -- is challenged and succeeds in a strong and healthy school each year. Meeting this goal is simply the right thing to do; our schools must not "write off" any child. Instead, each child must leave our schools ready to thrive in a challenging, rapidly changing economy.
The Wake County Public School System will educate each student to be a responsible and productive citizen who can effectively manage future challenges.
