Iola schools have a new mission. Or, at least, a new mission statement: “We educate all students for career and college readiness.”

The USD 257 board of education added new mission and vision statements, updating previous versions from 2008. The goal was to simplify the district’s mission into a concise statement that can appear on documents and buildings, with board members, administrators and staff keeping those statements in mind as they make decisions for the district.

The previous mission statement was a lengthy paragraph that included the phrase “inspire all students to succeed” and outlined the district’s beliefs toward that goal.
