OUR VISION: Learn More. Achieve More.

OUR MISSION: Continuous Improvement.

OUR GOAL: High Achievement for Each Student.

The goal of Carrollton-Farmers Branch Independent School District is high achievement for each student. Our work to help students reach their highest potential is guided by the following objectives: Continuously improve student learning
The instructional core is composed of the teacher and student in the presence of content. The relationship between the teacher, student, and content determines the nature of instructional practice. The only way to improve instruction is by increasing the level of knowledge and skill the teacher brings to instruction, change the role of the student in instruction, and to increase the level and complexity of content. How do we improve student learning?

  • Improve knowledge and skills of teachers and staff
  • Improve student engagement with content
  • Improve level and rigor of content

Continuously improve the learning environment
The learning environment comprises both the physical space and the emotional environment. Students must feel safe and secure, both physically and emotionally, in order for learning to occur. How do we improve the learning environment?

  • Ensure safety and security
  • Meet physical and emotional needs
  • Provide effective learning facilities
  • Increase access to digital learning

Continuously improve operational effectiveness
Operational effectiveness is the efficiency of business processes and fiscal resources. How do we improve operational effectiveness?

  • Improve human resources management
  • Improve financial management
  • Improve business operations
  • Improve technology infrastructure and operations

Continuously improve community support
Community support comprises support from parents, business, faith-based organizations, and community leadership. Schools cannot do it alone; CFB relies on partnership with stakeholders in the community for continued success. How do we improve community support?

  • Provide excellent customer service
  • Promote district accolades and initiatives
  • Encourage involvement from community organizations and leadership
