This we believe..
The MISSION of Putnam County Schools is to ensure that every student masters the curriculum and achieves academic success. We will dedicate our time, resources, and practices to closing the achievement gap, bringing all students to mastery and beyond, and preparing every student for success in a diverse and changing world. Working with the home and community, we will build a supportive system characterized by ethical behaviors, mutual respect, professionalism, and collaboration.
The goals of Putnam County Schools center on closing the achievement gap and bringing all students to mastery and beyond. Research shows that four variables directly affect student achievement, and that our schools and system control the quality of three of the four.
The variables or conditions that directly affect student achievement are the quality of curriculum, or "What we teach," the quality of instruction, or "How we teach," the overall school effectiveness, or "Where we teach," and the unique characteristics and background of the student, or "Whom we teach."
