Our Mission, Vision and Values

{title}
“To Inspire and Equip.” During the 2016-2017 academic year you’ll hear those words time and again throughout the District. With a new Mission, Vision and Values statement in hand, we’re excited about advancing our goal to be the District of choice in Spartanburg and we are committed in our focus to inspire and equip our students for meaningful lives of leadership and service as world citizens.
This is a unique time in the history of our District. We are leading on a number of fronts and poised for ongoing growth. From our nationally recognized 1:1 technology initiative called Seven Ignites to the increasingly strong outcomes of our graduating seniors – the cumulative effect of all that we do shines in the countless success stories of our children, the impressive contributions of our teachers and staff and the continued support of a community that has long prized excellence in education. With a momentous year ahead, be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter and keep an eye on the District 7 website for timely news and information.

Visiting Students from China get warm welcome from D7

Strength. Hope. Love. That’s Spartanburg.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr wrote, “Love is the most durable power in the world…Love is creative and redemptive. Love builds up and unites.” Every year our community comes together to honor and reflect on the words and purpose of Dr. King’s life during the City of Spartanburg’s Unity Week Celebration. This year’s celebration featured free events - a community walk, a day of service, and an evening unity celebration. District 7 was proud to support Unity Week.
Superintendent Russell Booker delivered greetings at the Mayor’s Unity Breakfast and McCracken student Corrine Bowden’s artwork was emblazoned on event t-shirts and banners telling the story of the powerful transforming forces of hope and love. MORE
