• Mission and Vision

    IU8's mission is to be a leader in educational partnerships with its customers—the school districts and their students—by offering a broad range of quality educational, technological and support services through continuous innovation. IU8 has continued to identify the needs of our customers and provide cost-effective quality services to meet those needs by focusing on six pillars, which support the foundation of the organization: customers, fiscal responsibility, innovation, empowerment, leadership and systems. More specifically, its goals are to: develop interactive communication among its districts and the surrounding community; respond to its customers’ needs by offering a broad range of educational, technological and learning support services; promote continuous staff development for its internal and external stakeholders by informing educational providers of the latest educational methods, materials and technology; and periodically assess its efforts to determine the quality of its services and the changing and expanding needs of its customers, in order to provide the highest quality and most comprehensive educational opportunities and effective learning environments for the students within IU8.
