Our Mission

To continuously improve the physical learning environment for students and staff within the South Kitsap School District by using inspiration, innovation and effectiveness while delivering very high quality customer service. 

Our Core Values

  • We require complete honesty and integrity in everything we do.
  • We respect the individual and believe that individuals who are treated with respect and given responsibility respond by giving their best.
  • We empower employees closest to the problem with the authority, skills and information required to do the job.
  • We make commitments with care and live up to them. In all things, we do what we say we are going to do. We walk the talk.
  • Work is an important part of life, and it should be fun. Acting in a professional manner does not mean one has to be stuffy and boring.
  • We are frugal. We guard and conserve the District’s resources with at least the same vigilance that we would use to guard and conserve our own personal resources.
  • We insist on giving the very best effort in everything we undertake. We own problems and are always responsive to others.
  • We see a huge difference between “good mistakes” (best effort, bad result) and “bad mistakes” (sloppiness or lack of effort).
  • Clarity in understanding our mission, our goals, and what we expect from each other is critical to our success.
  • In all our dealings we will always strive to be friendly and courteous, as well as fair and compassionate.
  • We feel a sense of urgency on any matters related to our customers. Our customer’s perception becomes our reality.
  • And we partner with our customers to deliver sustainable solutions.
