ICSD…6000+ Thinkers!

Today’s shirt comes from the Ithaca City School District and represents the vision and mission for the district:  Educate – Engage – Empower!

From their website:

VISION

We envision 6,000+ Thinkers. Thinking is foundational to the development of self and society. It is the cornerstone of all creative ideas and problem solving, new scientific discoveries, new products and services, individual and organizational learning, education, business success, interpersonal and intrapersonal communications, all social change and even democracy itself. Our vision is what we see. It motivates us. Our vision is audacious.

MISSION STATEMENT

Our Mission is to engage, educate, and empower. We will strive to engage all students in the importance and relevance of thinking; to educate every learner to communicate, comprehend, and collaborate for understanding; and to empower all in the ICSD to achieve academic excellence.
