Aspiring to World Class Learning

The WPCSD's vision is to change the world by creating a world class learning environment where all participants work interdependently to achieve our mission of promoting, supporting, and ensuring high levels of learning.

We recognize that aspiring to world class learning is a heavy lift; but it's one we embrace. We strive to align all of our endeavors toward this vision.  We also recognize that it is likely we will fall short of world class learning in many ways.  But the vision remains our guiding star, giving us a unified direction.

We define world class learning in the following ways.

  • Core academic learning.
  • College and career readiness opportunities.
  • School culture and climate and development of the affective domain.

The district performance plan spells out quantifiable metrics in each of these categories.  It also provides historical data of our performance on these metrics since 2016.  The plan also lays out our "how"--termed as "theories of action."  Our theories of action are leveraged on educational research and are designed to be pressure points that, when attended to with precision, are likely to move student achievement toward our vision of world class learning.  The theories of action are

  • Dramatically improved Tier 1 instruction.
  • Leadership development.
  • Building systems and structures in service of our vision.

All stakeholders are invited to join the team in this exciting work!  Interested parents, community members, businesses, and citizens can contact superintendent Adam Young at 775 289 4851 or at  School visits and volunteerism are welcomed.
