Carlisle Area School District must offer instructional programs so that every one of our students thrive, reach his or her full potential, and be ready for that next stage in life.

We must provide the best possible teachers for our students and ensure that our teachers have the necessary resources and well maintained facilities.

We must do so through prudent planning and wise fiscal stewardship knowing that our dollars are limited and remembering always that money comes from taxpayers.
