District Ends

Poudre School District has created a variety of goals and objectives to help shepherd the district in ensuring that the mission to Educate Every Child Every Day is being fulfilled.

The Board of Education's District Ends Policy (DE 1.0) outlines the overarching goals for the district. The Board of Education created new the new District Ends (adopted June 2014) with input from all community stakeholders including administrators, classified staff, teachers, parents and business leaders.

The Superintendent is charged with implementing programs to fulfill these goals and objectives. DE 1.0 outlines PSD's four major goals, which seek to ensure that all students have a well-rounded education that prepares them to succeed in a changing world.

  1. Foundations for Success: Colorado Academic Standards/Wellness
  2. Success in a changing world: Post-Secondary Readiness
  3. Above and Beyond: Individual levels of excellence for students
  4. Connections: Academically and Socially connected to the school community

These goals (encompased in DE 1.0) incorporate specific 21st Century Skills the board and district believe are necessary for students to succeed beyond high school either in a post-secondary institution or in the competitive workforce.

Through the improvement process, PSD also creates a Unified Improvement Plan each year with outlines areas for improvement and strategies and means by which the district is working to increase student achievement.
