A New Vision for the Lighthouse District

WINTER 2009

creating a strategic plan to carry our district into the future and meeting the challenges of funding, technology and changing expectations. This past summer, the St. Joseph Board of Education directed me to draw up a strategic plan for this district so every member of our community would know what our purpose is; what our values are; and what vision we have for our future. My administrative staff, following the mentorship of Harry Burritt on loan from Whirlpool Corporation, embarked upon meeting this directive. The following are key elements from our plan: Our Purpose: The purpose of SJPS is to prepare students to successfully meet the challenges of the future, and inspire caring compassionate, motivated individuals who will perpetuate the American way of life. Our Values: Excellence, Pride, Teamwork, Diversity, Integrity and Compassion Our Vision: St. Joseph Public Schools will be recognized as “A Lighthouse District”, using research based strategies, leading edge technologies and innovative practices to provide the highest quality learning experiences by • Delivering a curriculum that meets the needs of all learners • Achieving organizational and financial excellence • Forming a community of learners with a continuous improvement culture

• Providing facilities designed to meet or exceed requirements. • Using proven methods and equipment Our Strategic Plan is particulary important as we go through these hard economic times. Every decision to spend or cut must be made with our strategic goals in mind. In fact, every decision we make must ultimately bring us closer to our goal of being “A Lighthouse District”! Please feel free to send any comments you have regarding our strategic plan to: askibbe@sjschools.org or directly to 3275 Lincoln Ave., St. Joseph, MI 49085. Allen Skibbe Superintendent

School Board Leads Strong! THE STAFF AND STUDENTS OF ST. JOSEPH PUBLIC SCHOOLS WOULD LIKE TO THANK THE SCHOOL BOARD FOR THEIR PASSION AND LEADERSHIP. As citizen leaders, individual school board members face complex and demanding challenges. They are alternately described as having the most important volunteer jobs in the country and facing the toughest challenge in elected American government. Yet school board members are just ordinary citizens with extraordinary dedication to our nation’s public schools.

Up-Coming School Board Elections The Regular School Election will be held on Tuesday, May 5, 2009. There are two board member positions open with four-year terms, Dean Ray, Jr. and Bill Schalk. Nominating Petitions and an Affidavit of Identity must be filed no later than 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday, February 10, 2009. Nominating petitions may only be submitted at the County Clerk’s Office, Berrien County Courthouse, 811 Port Street, St. Joseph between 8:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Applications may be picked up at the Courthouse in St. Joseph.

Public education is the backbone of American society, and local school boards are deeply rooted

in U.S. tradition. Their origins can be traced to colonial times when the Massachusetts Law of 1642

empowered town officers to compel parents to teach their children to read. Today local school boards continue to do the most important work of their communities—that of educating our youth.

Their job is to establish a vision for the education program, design a structure to achieve that vision,

ensure schools are accountable to the community and strongly advocate continuous improvement in student learning. Yet local trustees sometimes tackle an often thankless job devoid of any glory. Too

often we are quick to criticize school board members without really knowing all the details that went into a given decision. Now is the time to thank them for their untiring efforts.

Although they wear many hats in the workday world, school board members put on a collective hat

when they get down to the business of leading their school districts. Board members must pull together

as a team toward a common goal—helping students achieve. Though they may individually disagree on certain issues, their role as a board is to consistently strive toward that goal.

In recognition of their dedicated service, January was designated as School Board Recognition Month.

The next time you see one of our School Board Members, please take the time to say - THANK YOU!
