Journey to 2030
We're excited to watch our commUNITY chart a course for the future of Mason City Schools over the next decade and beyond.
Tradition in Mason is rooted in a continuous quest to give Mason Comets outstanding opportunities to make sure they are prepared for their future. We had many opportunities over the last few years to lean on our three Big Rocks of Culture, Inclusive Excellence and Personalized Learning, and will use them to help guide our journey. For many years, a key Mason commitment from boards of education and leadership teams has been to engage the community, and we're excited to watch our community chart a course for the future of Mason City Schools over the next decade and beyond. Now more than ever, learning experiences for our students must not only provide for the acquisition of rigorous academic content, but must also foster critical thinking, communication, collaboration, creativity, and other future-ready skills and mindsets our students need to thrive.
