Welcome to the 2019-2020 School year!

 

Dear North Kitsap Community,  

 

I hope that everyone was able to rest and relax with family and friends over the summer holiday break. Here in the school district, the summer was very busy with summer maintenance projects, capital project work, hiring faculty and staff, and of course, making preparations to welcome all of our students back for the new school year. This week, our buildings are humming with activity as teachers and staff return to work and prepare for the arrival of our students on September 4th (kindergarteners on September 9th). The new school year is always an exciting time for us in NKSD, and we look forward to seeing all of our students!

You may recall that over the past several months, we had numerous staff, faculty, parents, and community members engaged in the development of the new strategic plan and we hosted community forums to discuss our goals, vision, and mission. Having a diverse range of voices represented during the planning phase helped us ensure that the goals for NKSD not only serve our students, but that the goals also align to the needs and values of our broader North Kitsap community.  


Our Mission We foster a safe, collaborative, and intentional learning environment where each student is known by name, strength and need.The result of this work is a comprehensive strategic plan that outlines our vision, mission, core values, goals, and which identifies the way we will attain our goals and accomplish our mission. We will strive to ensure that every NKSD student is a confident, competent, creative and compassionate person prepared for a world yet to be imagined. We will do this by fostering a safe, collaborative and intentional learning environment where each student is known by name, strength and need. This is bold, ambitious work, but I know that together, we will achieve this vision and mission. I look forward to inviting our community to come alongside us in partnership as we create opportunities to provide a strong foundation in early learning, develop our students as people and as learners, increase opportunities for all students, and provide experiences that ensure all of our students graduate future-ready

 

Our Vision - Every NKSD student is a confident, competent, creative and compassionate person who is prepared for a world yet to be imagined.The intent of the strategic plan is to provide focus and direction for our work in the district. When we align our efforts and work, we are able to accomplish so much more for our students. Important discussions about implementation of the plan are already underway across NKSD. We will be sharing additional information and details about the strategic plan with everyone in the coming months.  

 

In partnership,

Dr. Laurynn Evans

Superintendent

North Kitsap School District
