Purpose, Direction, Beliefs, and Priorities
During the 2011-12 school year, Buncombe County Schools conducted an extensive review process to establish a Strategic Plan for 2012 through 2017, including a Vision, Mission, Core Beliefs, and four board Priorities. On December 1, 2016, the Board of Education voted to update the language of these items for clarity, renaming them to Purpose, Direction, and Beliefs, and preserving the Priorities as written. Under this guidance, our Superintendent has established four initiatives, where these values are put into practice.
To provide safe and engaging learning environments that prepare students for their tomorrow.
Our students will become successful, responsible citizens in an ever-changing global society.
