Philosophy Statement of LPS

The Lincoln Board of Education is committed to providing the highest quality education for all Lincoln Public Schools students. The board sees the primary mission of the schools to be the development of responsible adults:

who are productive citizens of a pluralistic community, nation and world

who are prepared to learn throughout their lives; and

who are appreciative of the arts, history and culture. The board holds the district staff accountable for achieving the schools' mission through the most effective and efficient use of available resources.

The board further recognizes that students in the Lincoln Public Schools are educated for the future and therefore expects the school district to be self-renewing, flexible and capable of adjusting to the needs of its various constituencies. As the elected governing body of the school district, the board believes in sharing its decision-making processes with parents, students, other citizens and staff members.
