Barberton City Schools Strategic Plan
Vision: Barberton City Schools ... pursuing excellence for a bright tomorrow. 
Mission: To serve every child by challenging him/her to act with purpose and compassion in order to be productive, contributing citizens of our community and the world, and to impact future generations. 
The Board of Education determined in January, 2014 that there was a need to embark in a planning process that would lead the school district through the years ahead. There are many uses for district funds that are not optional when running a school district, but there are also programs, staff and facility improvements that are optional, and the community should be given the opportunity to voice an opinion.
At the heart of this plan are the students of Barberton. The Barberton City School District feels strongly that they are entrusted to provide the best educational opportunities to its students, as evidenced in the Beliefs, Mission and Vision Statements.
The Board of Education would like to thank all of the dedicated staff, students, parents and community members who gave their time and talents in order to complete this plan. We welcome further comments and suggestions from them and other stakeholders who were not involved in the original process. Please send these comments to Superintendent Patti Cleary at or to 479 Norton Ave., Barberton OH 44203.
