  • Educators are valued, seen, safe and thriving. They want to stay in Aurora Public Schools for their career.
  • Students are proficient at all grade levels and graduates are prepared for college and/or career.
  • Parents and guardians are partners and engaged. Parents and guardians keep students here.
  • Local partnerships are enhanced and sustained, providing greater opportunities for students.
  • We recruit, hire and retain the most talented educators.
