District Goals

Alden’s Mission

The mission of the Alden Central School District is to encourage the development of lifelong learners who will become responsible adults.  By emphasizing the necessary knowledge, skills and attitudes in a safe, nurturing environment, our graduates will be prepared to lead rewarding and successful lives.

We will:

  • Continue to articulate and refine a visionary technology plan that is highly engaging, intensely personal and technologically connected to 21st century skills. Technology will support an expansion of opportunities for learning.

  • Support a community coalition that builds upon collaboration with local government, businesses, and organizations to increase services and opportunities for our Alden community

  • Utilize data-driven evaluation processes and provide feedback that is clear, succinct, and dedicated to continuous improvement.

  • Design and provide a well-articulated curriculum and instructional program based upon New York State standards, research-based practices, 21st Century skills and professional experiences of educators to meet the individual instructional needs of each student to prepare them for college and career readiness.

  • Develop budgets that exhibit long-range fiscal responsibility to our community and ensure the integrity of our program and physical space.
