As many of you may already know, the Langley School District has been undertaking the task of creating a new Mission, Vision and Values statement for our district. Through the work of a collaborative steering community, they have been working with all the different stakeholders in our communities to devise what the purpose of our schools is, what we want for our children in the future and what core principles will guide our everyday behaviours so that these goals can be obtained. This past week, the staff and PAC had an opportunity to see the draft Mission, Vision and Core Values statement the process has created and provide feedback to help us move forward. The process sparked some great conversations about the state of education and how to make it even better.
It is important that West Langley have a voice in this process. And while we were able to get some feedback at our recent PAC meeting, we appreciate that not everyone can attend. Below is the power point presentation that includes visuals of the draft version of the Langley School District Mission, Vision and Core Values along with some of the questions we used to guide our conversations. The third slide is The Future of Learning in Langley video. You can also find more information along with a video from Superintendent Suzanne Hoffman on the district website.

I would encourage you to check out the information and then provide your thoughts and feedback by either emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or commenting below this post. You can also provide your thoughts to Mr. Davids through email or in person. It is important that the Mission, Vision and Core Values that will guide our decisions in the future is a collaborative effort involving all those that it will effect. We look forward to hearing from the West Langley community.
