Cardington-Lincoln Board of Education Vision and Mission for Community School Sponsorship


Board Adopted April 10, 2017


The mission of the Cardington-Lincoln Local School district to lead ALL students to college, career, and civic readiness extends to its role as sponsor of community schools.



The Cardington-Lincoln Board of Education will provide exemplary sponsorship of the schools which it authorizes through striving for the highest standards of oversight, technical assistance, and monitoring.  The Cardington-Lincoln  staff will foster  collaboration with all community school stakeholders to promote an environment of high achievement and social growth for all students in the region.



Cultivate high academic and civic standards, fiduciary responsibility, and institutional accountability for the operation of local community schools and provide appropriate educational options for all students.



The Cardington-Lincoln Board of Education values the opportunity for parents and students throughout the region to have a choice in selecting the most appropriate educational option for the individual child.  With this in mind it is important that all community schools demonstrate the commitment and capacity to provide a high quality academic, extracurricular, and social engagement program for all students regardless of race, color, sex, age, religion, national origin, ancestry, disability, marital status, or any other status protected by law.
