- Improve Student Achievement: The Olathe Public Schools will increase achievement for all students through learning based on a comprehensive, challenging instructional program, focused on individual needs and grounded in research.
- Recruit, Develop, Retain a Quality Staff: The Olathe Public Schools will actively recruit, develop, and retain a highly competent, caring, and student-focused staff throughout the organization.
- Engage and Involve All District Stakeholders: The Olathe Public Schools will proactively inform and engage all district stakeholders (staff, students, and community) to support and ensure student success.
- Use Resources Responsibly: The Olathe Public Schools will implement effective and efficient financial, operational, and safety procedures to enhance its educational program.
The Olathe School District’s Vision is: Students prepared for their future! This along with other statements identifies what the Olathe Public Schools stand for as an organization. This is an important aspect of the Strategic Planning process.
