    As Palmyra Area Schools, we...
  1. will always support core academic subjects (reading, writing, math, science, social studies) as district priorities.
  2. will provide evidence-based interventions in the areas of literacy and math for targeted students at every grade level, realizing that a strong K-2 literacy foundation is imperative.
  3. will adhere to all federal and state mandates.
  4. will allocate resources to those non-core, academic, electives that meet the needs of the largest number of students, while maintaining a balance of offerings.
  5. will create learning environments that better prepare students with 21st century skills (inquiry, research, collaboration, presentation, reflection, innovation) by:
    1. integrating them across the students' Palmyra experience.
    2. utilizing technology resources as tools for teaching and learning.
  6. realize that to improve teaching and learning and meet our goals as a district, it is vital that we will maintain high-quality:
    1. cohesive, strong leadership.
    2. professional development related to our district vision.
  7. recognize the need to:
    1. examine the other cost efficiency measures.
    2. rely on data to inform our decisions.
    3. research efficient, collaborative solutions with other educational entities, local programs, and area organizations before any student programs are cut.
  8. will offer co-curricular activities for all students in a (more) efficient and cost effective manner.
  9. will create and maintain physical learning environments (facilities) that are cost effective, with attention to the environmental impact.
