The mission of the Shenandoah School Corporation is to provide a safe and secure environment for the intellectual, academic, emotional, social, technical, and vocational development of all students.
Our Beliefs About Education
1. Empower school personnel to implement school improvement initiatives as outlined in Public Law 221, No Child Left Behind (NCLB) legislation, the School Improvement Plans for each Shenandoah School.
2. Refine curriculum, instructional strategies, assessments and remediation programs that promote increased student achievement in all areas of the Common Core State Standards and Indiana's Plan as we shift to CCSS. Continue to add dual credit courses and AP courses to our high school curriculum. Monitor student progress on a regular basis as defined by each subject.
3. Define and model good citizenship, promote character education, and bullying prevention.
4. Expand school initiatives through the Wellness Policy as defined by the Child Nutrition Reauthorization Act of 2004, inclusive of prevention activities for tobacco, alcohol and drugs.
5. Expand the use of technology including STI to increase communication from school personnel to parents on student attendance, academic standards, classroom assignments and grades/achievement while continuing to provide training for certified and support staff.
6. Implement financial efficiencies that reflect the funding realities through the Indiana Department of Education, Indiana General Assembly, the Office of the Governor and Henry County for 2011-2013.
