The mission of Seymour Community School District is to create a cooperative community of people committed to constantly improving learning environments that enable students to demonstrate their uniqueness as total persons who are active learners, caring members of society, creative artists, ethical stewards, involved citizens, and productive workers.
We believe that the Seymour Community School District exists to assist all students to develop to their fullest capacity, for their own benefit and for the benefit of their community, their state, their nation and the world. We believe that there are certain attitudes, which should be held by and about the school and community. These include:
•The recognition of each student as uniquely individual.
•That both in theory and practice, the school must show that it believes in the basic worthiness of each individual and in the brotherhood of man.
•The belief that our schools are responsible, not only for presenting the theory of freedom and democracy, but for insuring as well that each student be privileged and encouraged to participate in the democratic process within the school system.
•The realization that the student is more fully served when the community and the schools become cooperatively inter-involved.
•The acknowledgement that curriculum, co-curricular and extracurricular activities as well as methodology should be in keeping with the times.
•The acknowledgement that our schools, working in and with the community, should make a maximum effort to meet the academic, aesthetic, social and vocational needs of each student.
