Board of Education

The District is governed by a Board of Education consisting of seven members. The Board’s powers and duties include the authority to adopt, enforce and monitor all policies for the management and governance of the District’s schools.

Official action by the Board of Education may only occur at a duly called and legally conducted meeting at which a quorum is physically present. Board of Education members, as individuals, have no authority over school affairs, except as provided by law or as authorized by the Board.


Vision, Mission, Guiding Principles

Vision

To be a community school district where students develop the skills they need to change the world and the confidence they need to do it.

Mission

To provide a premier educational experience that teaches students to be critical thinkers and
enables them to achieve their full potential – academically, socially, and emotionally.

Guiding Principles

We value academic excellence and believe it is best achieved through:

Curriculum: Research-based, results-oriented educational programs reflective of community expectations.

Critical Thinking: Fuels academic success and the development of 21st century skills.

Creativity: Recognizes the whole child and fosters personal achievement in the arts, athletics and extracurricular activities.

Competition: As a healthy measure of preparedness and self-motivation.

Courage: Doing the right thing guides behavior and builds confidence.

Curiosity: Life-long learners are curious about the world around them.

Community: Parental and community involvement results in better outcomes; responsible and equitable resource management strengthens our schools and community; and good citizenship is modeled through service to others.

Collaboration and Communication: Open, transparent and respectful dialogue with and among stakeholders about decisions and the decision making process reinforces trust and improves outcomes.

Continuous Improvement: Setting high standards allows students and staff to meet their full potential and excel.

Consistency: In personal performance as well as offerings between schools and within schools, an integral element to success at all levels.
