Prior to the formation of the LRUEMS District in 2018, each elementary school developed and used school-specific visions, missions, and core beliefs.  This work and history are important and valued as a key piece of each elementary school’s identity.  The Strategic Planning Committee found that, while the vocabulary and format may differ, the content is strongly aligned with OCSU and LRUHS’s historical commitment to the Vision, Mission, and Core Values above.  Each elementary school may continue to use its version of the Vision, Mission, and Core Values, recognizing that LRUEMSD is now a single district and all share responsibility for student outcomes PK-12.  Thus, each elementary school is asked to explicitly consider and articulate the alignment between the school’s vision, mission, values, and the shared OCSU/LRUEMS/LRUHS mission, vision, and values as part of their ongoing work.
