WILMINGTON, MA — Superintendent of Schools Mary DeLai yesterday released the results of the recent survey conducted to solicit feedback from parents and residents on the school system’s proposed new vision statement, mission statement and core values.

Superintendent DeLai posted the following on her blog yesterday:

We thank the nearly two hundred Wilmington community members who responded to our recent survey soliciting your feedback on our newly drafted Wilmington Public Schools Vision, Mission, and Core Values Survey.  Based on your feedback, revisions have been made and the final versions are presented below.  We are pleased to report that 98% of respondents either strongly agreed or agreed that the Vision Statement captures what people would like to see WPS become over the next several years.  Sixty percent agreed strongly with the statement.  Similarly, 95% of respondents either strongly agreed or agreed with the Mission Statement with 58% strongly agreeing.  Your suggested edits were greatly appreciated and have been incorporated in the revisions.

WPS Vision:  Wilmington Public Schools is a high-performing district where all students are provided opportunities to learn through high-quality, rigorous curriculum and engaging, personalized instruction delivered in a safe, supportive, inclusive environment.  All members of our school community work together to develop confident, empathetic, life-long learners and responsible citizens.  Our students become innovative, creative, collaborative problem-solvers capable of making positive contributions to society.

WPS Mission:  Wilmington Public Schools provides a challenging, relevant, personalized educational experience that promotes both the academic success and the social and emotional well-being of all students.  Well-trained and highly qualified staff provide students with multiple ways to demonstrate individual learning and growth, and prepare them for success in school, work, and life.

WPS Core Values: Respect, Inclusiveness, Responsibility, Integrity

DeLai then invited interested parents to attend the Wilmington School Committee Meeting on Wednesday, September 23 at 7pm in the High School’s Large Group Instruction Room. The Committee will continue to discuss — and possibly approve — the school system’s draft strategy for improvement of student outcomes, which can be read HERE.
