  • Lewis-Palmer School District

     Karen Brofft, Superintendent of Schools



    We believe in local, national and global stewardship and our responsibility to create strong citizens who will secure a better world.  This is WHY we educate.



    Goals and Objectives

    Specific goals have been identified by Karen Brofft, Superintendent, and the Lewis-Palmer Board of Education.


    What is essential?

    Entering into the third year as Superintendent of Schools for D38, the focus will shift from establishing foundational relationships and planning for continuous improvement to developing systems which will ensure sustainability of success.  This will include a focus on individual school autonomy within a collaborative district system.  Additionally, this will require planning for the future in terms of facilities and increasing partnerships with our community.


    Superintendent goals are fully aligned with the District Altitude Framework.


    Goal #1

    Offer a premier educational experience for D38 students that supports student success in the near-term and beyond graduation.



    • Use the D38 Instructional Model and school-based Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) to ensure continued success throughout the district with regard to curriculum, instruction and assessment
    • Develop a process to measure D38’s ongoing implementation with regard to curriculum, instruction and assessment
    • Ensure meaningful access to and integration of technology to promote student learning and postsecondary preparation


    Goal #2

    Engage the community in opportunities to understand and impact public education in the district and State of Colorado.



    • Engage community and State with regard to improving the commitment Colorado makes to funding public schools
    • Provide opportunities for the community at large to develop their own understandings about the value of public education
    • Continue to build relationships with business partners to develop opportunities for students and build capacity within the community to identify partnerships with D38 


    Goal #3

    Facilitate long-range planning activities to ensure sound planning for future facilities needs.



    • Complete the facilities analysis and long-range planning process with the vendor selected to complete the Long-range Facilities Plan project.
    • Determine next steps as a result of the analysis of the recommendations from the Long-range Facilities Plan
    • Involve stakeholders in both the development of the Long-range Facilities Plan and the implementation of next steps 



    Our endgame will continue to be the focus on students and their success as graduates of Lewis-Palmer School District.  Future goals for the Superintendent will continue to address some specific long-term outcomes.
