Goochland’s Vision and Mission
Our vision: Inspiring and Preparing the next generation to make a positive impact.
Our mission: To maximize the potential of every learner.
Access our full Strategic Plan, Inspire2020, on its own page.
We believe our core values will help us direct everything we do, from budget planning, professional development, and learning in every one of our schools. Our values are a moral compass for decision making, and they define the character of our students, our employees, and our expectations for our community.
In September, 2014, the board began recognizing employees and students who were helping to make a positive impact on others within our division and our community. Called the ECCHO Award, this recognition celebrates those who have truly made one or more of our core values an important part of their lives as lifelong learners. Nominations may be made via our ECCHO Awards Page.
