HOW WE VIEW IMPROVEMENT
The London City School District is working hard to be a premier school district both in Madison County and beyond. As such, the district has established a strategic plan to move the skills students learn as part of our schools to mindsets for future success in college and careers. Every individual within the district is responsible in some part for the success of the district as a whole. In order to be discipline driven, the district and each school have identified metrics and strategies for measuring success in reaching each goal.
You can learn more about how the district is working to achieve these goals by choosing the "district strategic plan" tab on the district homepage menu.
