The Board of Education Objectives / Action Plan
The Board of Education’s Comprehensive Plan: 2012-2017 updates the Board’s previous plan, which covered the years 2007-2012. The Comprehensive Plan provides the framework for the policy development and leadership needed to achieve the Board's mission.
The mission of the Board of Education and Superintendent of Public Instruction, in cooperation with their partners, is to develop policies and provide leadership that improve student achievement and prepare students to succeed in postsecondary education and the workplace.
The Board of Education’s mission and goals for public education support lifelong academic and career achievement for all students in the Commonwealth. Virginia’s young people are the hope of a bright future not only for themselves and their families, but for the state, the nation, and the rapidly expanding international economy. It is clear we are not only preparing our students to succeed in postsecondary education and the workplace, but to be globally competitive in the 21st century. By creating an exceptional statewide system of public education and meeting the increasingly diverse needs of students, our youth will thrive as they live and work in an expanding and complex global economy.
