We envision students engaged in relevant and rigorous instruction that includes cross-curricular learning, problem solving, innovative technologies, multi-cultural experiences, and the exploration of personal aspirations. As such, our students will be challenged to think creatively, critically, and independently. They will learn to solve problems efficiently, lead with passion and integrity, and communicate effectively.
To compliment this work, the strategic planning committee's strategic intents identify how, as a community, Honeoye Falls-Lima will continue to measure the success of the District. As such, the committee has established the following four major components:
Safety - We know that students and staff must feel safe and secure before high-level learning can occur. That is why the Honeoye Falls-Lima School District has placed safety as our first strategic intent.
Student Achievement - Students of Honeoye Falls-Lima Schools will engage in rigorous and relevant application of:
Skills development in communication and the use of technology in that communication
Current technology tools
Multi-cultural experiences with language study and cultural exploration
Cougar Pride - The School District will provide and foster an inviting school environment in which the Honeoye Falls-Lima community feels pride and ownership.
Student Engagement - Students in Honeoye Falls-Lima Schools will have experiences in and out of the classroom that are made meaningful and relevant through their connections and relationships with others in the school community. These experiences will nurture responsible and ethical decision-making, and quality of character.
Program Budget Advisory Council (PBAC)
HF-L continually seeks to optimize its budget to create great learning for students and to best serve the community. The PBAC includes community members along with teachers and staff who reside in the school district. The PBAC offers feedback and helps prioritize recommendations regarding the programs and services considered for the 2022-23 school year.
Each school building and department has presented their instructional goals and budget priorities during a series of meetings. At the end of the presentations, the PBAC shared their reflections and the priorities they believe are the most important with the Board of Education for the development of the final budget.
Community members that have served on the PBAC in past years have found this to be a rewarding way to be engaged with HF-L and make a meaningful contribution to the school. If you are interested in being a part of this committee in the future, please contact Colin Pierce, Assistant Superintendent for Business and Operations at email@example.com or by phone at 585-624-7020. Volunteers must be able to access the internet, attend approximately six meetings (remotely) on Tuesday evenings, and be willing to provide written feedback following the presentations.
Please be sure to check back, as information will be updated regularly. For additional information regarding the budget process please contact Gene Mancuso, Superintendent of Schools by email at Gene.Mancuso@hflcsd.org or call 624-7010.
