The mission of the State Board of Education is to lead the development of state policy, provide system oversight, and advocate for student success.
The State Board of Education envisions a learner-focused state education system that is accountable for the individual growth of each student, so that students can thrive in a competitive global economy and in life.
The 2015-2018 Strategic Plan contains four goals for the State Board of Education:
- Develop and support policies to close the achievement and opportunity gaps.
- Develop comprehensive accountability, recognition, and supports for students, schools, and districts.
- Ensure that every student has the opportunity to meet career and college ready standards.
- Provide effective oversight of the K-12 system.
