School Board Core Values

CORE BELIEFS IN SUPPORT OF A 21st CENTURY EDUCATION


RIGOR AND RELEVANCE FOR STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT

We are committed to excellence through a relevant, balanced, and equitable curriculum that promotes intellectual freedom and develops critical thinking skills through innovative and alternative educational approaches.

A PROFESSIONAL LEARNING COMMUNITY

We believe that students are best served when we employ the highest quality certificated, classified, and administrative staff members who embrace a culture of continuous learning and ongoing strategic, innovative, and relevant professional development.

PARENTS AS PARTNERS – COMMUNITY COLLABORATION

We value the families in our community and believe that student success is our primary product.  The education of our children is a community responsibility, requiring families, businesses, and service organizations to provide support and to participate actively in our schools.

CIVIC RESPONSIBILITY

We believe that students thrive in a culture that supports the constitutional, patriotic foundations and religious freedoms of our democratic American society and promotes high, ethical standards of integrity, honesty, kindness, equality, and respect for all.

SAFETY

We believe in a safe learning environment for the entire learning community.

FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY

We believe that fiscal health is critical to ensuring a quality, student-focused learning environment.
