Sycamore Community School District 427’s mission statement, Empowering All Learners to Succeed in Their World, was the result of conversations with community members, staff and students during the District’s first strategic design in 2001. All of these stakeholders were proud of our past and our promising future. In particular, students wanted their voices heard, which is why the word “their” is emphasized in the statement. The word “learners” appears in the statement because learning is the District’s main focus.
