The mission of the Mayfield Independent School District is to provide an excellent education for all students by offering high quality and technologically superior programs, to empower visionary leadership and to wisely manage resources in alliance with the individual schools, community members and the home.
OUR DISTRICT PHILOSOPHY......
It shall be the policy of Mayfield Board of Education to place special emphasis on the quality of teaching in its schools. To that end the Board will support a program of periodic evaluation of the performance of teaching personnel. The Board wishes to give primary consideration to the teaching of basic skills such as reading, writing and arithmetic.
The Board believes that teachers should provide supervised study as an integral part of the regular school program. Additionally, teachers shall encourage pupils in the independent exploration and study of matters related to class work.
The Board favors participation in federal programs or other externally sponsored programs which, in the judgment of the administrative staff, shall be beneficial to the total school program. However, the Board believes that the local district should continue the high level of effort in support of the public schools which has been manifested by local initiative, involvement, and participation in effecting solutions to educational problems.
