Mission Statement
The mission of the Pine-Richland School District is to focus on learning for every student every day. 
Focused on Learning Picture Updated Vision Statement

The vision of the Pine-Richland School District is a picture developed by a student that captures the mission and provides a vivid reminder of the challenge and opportunity of our schools. The  image conveys the following:

  • Learning is our primary purpose.

  • Learning occurs inside and outside the classroom.
  • Learning is measured as BOTH achievement AND growth.

  • Learning happens differently for different people so flexibility and variation are needed in the approach.
  • Learning requires effort and persistence.
  • Learning is for all of us and requires the support of everyone (e.g., student, staff, and parents).
 Shared Values
PRIDE Sign Personal Growth represents a belief in the whole child and development through the years at Pine-Richland. In addition to academic growth, this value is meant to represent social, emotional, and physical growth as well. Personal growth can also be applied to the staff.
Resiliency is locally defined as "the ability to adapt well in the face of hard times and build upon one's strengths." It was adapted from the American Psychological Association. We believe that students must be equipped to handle success and adversity in their lives. 
Innovation  represents  breakthrough change or new ways of performance in a discontinuous manner. Through the town hall discussions, innovation also signals an emphasis on problem solving and critical thinking.
Diverse Opportunities capture the importance of a wide range of choices in academics, athletics, arts and activities. It acknowledges the fact that students have varied interests. Exposure to a wide variety of opportunities helps them achieve personal growth and potential areas of future interest.
Engagement reflects the degree to which students, staff, parents, and community are part of the school district. It reflects engagement in the classroom for students as well as their connection to other aspects of student life. For our staff and community, engagement is a critical element of achieving our goals.
