•Excellence: We will ensure all students have access to rigorous content at or above grade level.
•Engagement and Expectations: We will develop knowledge, attitudes, skills and practices to create learning environments and opportunities that expect and support high achievement for all students.
•Empowerment: We will create sustainable partnerships in supporting academic achievement for all students.

•Every student in VASD has a personalized learning plan that provides a path to discovery and achievement and that plan is reviewed and changed at least annually based on the student’s needs.
•Every student’s parent, guardian or advocate participates directly in the design, implementation, and outcomes of that student’s personalized learning plan.
•Every student meets or exceeds the goals of his or her personalized learning plan every school year.
•Every VAHS student graduates.
•Every VAHS graduate achieves their choice of college and career path, as detailed in their personalized learning plan.
