Board of Ed.
The Board of Education is dedicated to educating students to develop desired moral, ethical, and cultural values, to stimulate and expand a continual learning process, and to cultivate an understanding and appreciation of the rights and responsibilities of American citizens, which will enable them to function effectively as independent individuals in a democratic society. The Board believes that each individual should be accepted into the educational program as he or she is and that the educational environment provided will promote positive behavioral changes in the best interests of our students.
The educational programs will provide each child with the fundamental academic skills and basic knowledge required for his/her maximum educational development, the opportunity for each child to develop his/her interests and abilities to the fullest extent according to his/her individual potential, and special services to promote the physical, mental, and emotional development of each child. It is the District's goal to foster in students good work habits, integrity, self-discipline, good sportsmanship, self-confidence, and a sense of purpose. Extracurricular activities will be offered when possible to enhance the academic program.
The Board encourages parents and teachers to offer their expertise in helping to develop a school environment that is academically challenging, psychologically satisfying and socially fulfilling for students at all levels. The objectives of an educational program are best realized when mutual understanding, cooperation, and effective communications exist among the home, community and school. The Board strongly endorses the following points of view
1. A reaffirmation of faith in the American representative processes and in the public school system.
2. A dedication to seek, employ and retain the best teaching talent available.
3. A recognition of the school's legal and moral obligations in the community to manage the schools in a sound and economical manner.
4. An appreciation of the Board's responsibility of establishing policies for the schools and maintaining the best possible educational conditions for our students.
