The Board of Education’s core values are the non-negotiable principles, shared beliefs and collective commitments that must be demonstrated by the Board of Education and district staff in order to advance the district vision and mission.
SUCCESS FOR ALL STUDENTS
WE BELIEVE the success of every student matters; outcomes should not be predictable by race, ethnicity, or socioeconomic status; and, equity demands the elimination of all achievement gaps and meeting the needs of students of all abilities and backgrounds.
WE BELIEVE providing a safe, secure and personalized learning environment is essential for students’ physical, emotional and intellectual development.
WE BELIEVE in a commitment to continuous improvement through holding our practice to the highest standards of performance, effectiveness and efficiency.
WE BELIEVE accountability to the community for performance and results matters and that it is a reciprocal process requiring the provision of resources and support for staff to meet the expectations. Being accountable and reliable in our actions and commitments demonstrates responsibility, helps evaluate our effectiveness and informs practice.
WE BELIEVE in inclusiveness, that each individual’s differences and contributions are valued and the diversity of cultures, abilities and backgrounds is an asset to the district.
WE BELIEVE each individual’s contributions add value to our learning community; fair treatment, honesty, openness, and integrity are essential.
WE BELIEVE in the wise stewardship and investment of funds and resources and in the realization of a high return on investment from the use of taxpayer funds.
