Mission & Vision Statements
The mission of Upper Cape Cod Regional Technical School is to foster a lifelong commitment to learning, community, personal responsibility and career growth within a diverse student population of 21st century learners through the integration of academic and technical proficiency, while preparing students to be effective members of a global society.
Our vision is that Upper Cape Cod Regional Technical School graduates will be personal and professional role models in the workplace, post-secondary schools, and in their communities.
The Superintendent of Schools has the overall responsibility for implementation of this policy and he/she shall report once a year to the School Committee on steps taken and progress made in the development of an Affirmative Action Plan implementing this policy.
The Upper Cape Cod Regional Technical School is committed to the development of self-reliant, responsible, lifelong learners capable of successfully competing in a rapidly changing technological world. Administration, faculty, and staff seek to educate the whole student by preparing graduates who know how to think, lead healthy lives, behave ethically, and assume the responsibility of citizenship in the pluralistic society in which we live and work.
We are committed to developing students who enter the workforce prepared for change, with employability skills that can be transferred and adapted as technology advances. We must equip students to be able to find answers to questions that have not yet been asked. We adhere to the philosophy of intensive occupationally specific instruction integrated with strong academic preparation. These high standards will enable students to realize their lifelong employment and educational goals.
We recognize our responsibility to the communities we serve by providing quality equal opportunity post-secondary programs to educate and retrain workers in preparation for the challenges of the 21st century. Upper Cape Cod Regional Technical School addresses the ancillary needs of our communities by providing services and facilities to business, labor, public service, and recreational organizations.
Success in fulfilling our goals is contingent on a sufficient and qualified multicultural staff and on policies that foster professional development and a positive work environment. We believe open communication and participation with all segments of the school and the community will create an atmosphere of mutual respect and cooperation necessary for successful teaching and learning.
