        We envision…

        The School District of Palm Beach County is an educational and working environment, where both
        students and  staff are unimpeded by bias or discrimination.   Individuals of all backgrounds and
        experiences are embraced, affirmed, and inspired.  Each and every one will succeed and flourish.

        The School District of Palm Beach County  will take ownership for students' academic mastery,
        emotional intelligence, and social-emotional needs by creating environments where students, families,
        staff, and communities will develop agency and voice.

        A joy of learning is fostered in each student and a positive vision for their future is nurtured.  Each
        student’s cultural heritage is valued, and their physical, emotional, academic, and social needs are met.

        ...WE SEE YOU.
