Vision Meeting September 27th, 6 to 8 p.m.

Dear Parent, Staff and Community Members,


The Rochester School Board would like to invite you to participate in the Strategic Planning Process.   We have surveyed the community, had a retreat and now we would like to engage in visioning work. We would like your feedback on a vision for the Rochester School system.


The event is planned for September 27th from 6 to 8 p.m. in the first floor conference at the Rochester Community Center.  Please come and provide your feedback. If you are unable to make it but have suggestions about the vision, mission or other thoughts, email to:

A mission statement is a concise explanation of the organization’s reason for existence. It describes the organization’s purpose and its overall intention. The mission statement supports the vision and serves to communicate purpose and direction to employees, customers, vendors and other stakeholders

Current:  “The Mission of the Rochester School Department is to ensure quality educational experiences


Proposed Mission

The Rochester New Hampshire School District provides a personalized education for all students Pre-school to Grade 12.  Students will be prepared as educated, responsible, and contributing citizens, who can read, write, communicate, and calculate with clarity and accuracy using current technologies and resources.

Our Vision in ten years ???  What does success look like ?  If we ignore the constraints, what would we do differently ?

A vision statement looks forward and creates a mental image of the ideal state that the organization wishes to achieve. It is inspirational and aspirational and should challenge employees. Questions to consider when drafting vision statements might include:


  • What problem are we seeking to solve?
  • Where are we headed?
  • If we achieved all strategic goals, what would we look like 10 years from now?


We will create a vision for Rochester Schools  during the meeting on September 27th.
