Theory of Action

A group of dedicated community members, parents and school personnel have laid out “a noble, logical diagram” for actualizing the mission and vision of our district. This diagram, referred to as a theory of action, defines what are perceived to be essential elements necessary to optimize learning in our organization. The Theory of Action lays the foundation for defining what we value in WCSD and reminds us that the combination of hard work and a clear focus will allow us to truly optimize learning.
