101 Educational Philosophy of the District

The District and the Board are dedicated to promoting an equal opportunity for a quality public education to its students, within the limitations of the school district’s ability, in order to provide for students, in cooperation with the families and the school district community.
The Board is also dedicated to providing the opportunity for students to develop a healthy social, intellectual, emotional and physical self-concept in a learning environment that provides guidance, promotes critical thinking, and encourages each student to develop his/her full potential and become a productive citizen. 
The District and the Board endeavor, through the dedication of the District’s resources, to encourage students who come to the District from a variety of backgrounds to look forward to the time when they will have jobs, homes, families, and places in the community, and attain recognition as individuals. In order to achieve this goal, the District and the Board will seek qualified employees dedicated to the development of their professional skills for the betterment of the education program.
Instruction and curriculum are the key elements of a public education. Critical thinking and problem solving skills that will assist the students' preparation for life are instructed as part of a sequentially coordinated curriculum. The District strives to prepare students for employment, to discover and nurture creative talent and to prepare them to meet and cope with social change in an atmosphere conducive to learning.
The support and involvement of the home and the community are essential to achieve educational excellence in the educational program.  The District strives to maintain an active relationship with the home and the community to create within the students an awareness of the dignity and worth of the individual, civil responsibility and respect for authority.
