The Elkhorn Area School District has a long standing tradition of providing an exceptional education at an exceptional value to our local community. Our foundation is based upon the following three pillars: “District Goals”, “District Philosophy” and “Statements of Belief”. These three documents were created in cooperation with our community, and they serve as a compass for our work. If you have not reviewed these three documents I encourage you to do so by clicking on the embedded links above, or visiting the applicable sections on our website under district policies.
After reviewing our overarching vision we felt it necessary to develop one simple statement that all employees, parents, community members, and students could remember and strive for. After much thought, discussion, and deliberation we selected, “Top Ten Percent In All We Do”. If each and everyone of us can perform at the top ten percent then we as a district we will have no problem fulfilling our District Goals, District Philosophy and Statements of Belief. We recognize that on a day to day basis we will not always perform at that level, but it is our hope that as we strive to be in the “Top Ten Percent In All We Do”, we will elevate our performance and thus the service to our parents, students, and the community. This target applies to all of us, as Martin Luther King Jr. said,
“Whatever your life's work is, do it well. A man should do his job so well that the living, the dead, and the unborn could do it no better.”
By striving to meet this target we will succeed in maximizing growth for EVERY student, resulting improving academic achievement for ALL students, and expanding access and opportunities for ALL, which will result in students who are exceptionally well prepared for a globally competitive 21st Century.
