Mission Statement:
Rains Independent School District will meet all students’ individual needs so that they may become responsible citizens.

Core Beliefs:
We believe that all students have the ability to learn and they possess the qualities to become valuable members of the community.

We believe all parents can influence their students’ hopes and dreams and are essential participants in the educational process through involvement, communication and partnerships between school and home.

We believe all teachers and paraprofessionals should build personal compassionate relationships with students and parents and design engaging and challenging lessons that prepare their students for the future.

We believe all support staff (nurses, technology, maintenance, custodial, cafeteria, law enforcement, transportation, counselors, volunteers, etc.) are essential to the safety, security and success of students.

We believe all principals should be visible, visionary leaders who are passionate about education and who foster a successful school community and learning environment.

We believe the superintendent and central office should define a clear vision for the district through leadership and visibility in the community and schools.

We believe the school board advocates for all students, voices the expectations of the community, and supports the mission, vision and values of the district.
