Shelby County Schools' Mission
Destination 2025 is designed to not only improve the quality of public education, but also create a more knowledgeable, productive workforce and ultimately benefit the entire community.
To increase student achievement by ensuring highly effective teachers and leaders create and maintain learning environments tailored to the needs of all learners.
The intent of the iZone is to accelerate school turnaround in high-need schools that have been designated by the state as among the state's lowest performing schools. Our mission is that within five years, priority schools selected provide excellent principals and teachers the opportunity to dramatically improve student learning through autonomy over personnel, program, time, and budget decisions.
