The K–12 Cabinet assists in setting the vision and advocacy of that vision for the mission and ministry of elementary and high schools. It works to develop goals and strategies to accomplish the vision. It is an enabling agent for activities and services which are best accomplished collaboratively.

All of this is done to enhance the witness and ministry of the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod in the district, and serve as a resource to Lutheran elementary and high school teachers, principals, and congregational leaders.
