We’re going to start things off by sharing the Back to Basics mission. But before we do that, a quick word about a mission vs a vision statement.
A mission statement is intended to be informative, answer fundamental questions about what our PAC does, and is a snapshot of the PAC right now, TODAY.
In contrast, a vision statement paints a bigger picture of what the PAC will become in the future and is focused on the TOMORROW of PAC -- what the PAC will grow into during the coming weeks, months, and years.
The mission of Back to Basics West Chester is to educate the public on school-related issues facing children and families in the WCASD, financially support and elect new school board members in 2023, and provide a framework for bringing educational excellence back to the WCASD.
Although teachers are not mentioned in our mission, we want to take this opportunity to say that we ❤️ teachers! We have all had our lives touched by teachers—past and present--and we believe that teachers are vital to a successful society. Every child deserves a world-class education that will academically prepare that child to succeed as a productive citizen*, and teachers play a critically important role in each child’s success. We absolutely believe that teachers are our district’s most valuable resource, and in the coming months we will make a case for paying teachers MORE because we believe that teachers are underpaid and overworked.
*If this sounds familiar it’s because this sentiment is grounded in the mission of the PA Department of Education.
Stop by tomorrow to learn about our vision for Back to Basics West Chester!
