Purpose, Scope, and Sustainability Policy:
Sustainability is a guiding principle that supports the School/District’s mission to be a leader in student achievement, to provide best value for the dollars received and to support the community for generations to come. Sustainability is defined as “meeting the educational, environmental, social, and economic needs of present generations without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”
A Sustainability Management System (SMS) is an explicit set of arrangements and processes to manage sustainability issues, and ensure that a School/District’s sustainability goals and objectives are achieved. It addresses the environmental, social and economic impact of the School/District’s activities, both immediate and long-term. The SMS applies to all activities of the School/District. It provides order and consistency in the allocation of resources and assignment of responsibilities and involves all employees. It provides for ongoing evaluation of practices, procedures, and processes.
The School/District defines a sustainability policy to provide a guiding vision, and to ensure that its activities and services support its education mission and also become sustainable and eventually restorative. It expresses a long-term commitment to continual improvement and a strategic direction that fosters and inspires Oregon’s next generation of leaders. The sustainability policy is adopted by the School/District school board and supported by the School/District superintendent and staff.
