Annually, the District and the Board of Education jointly develop goals and objectives that guide their decisions regarding policy, programs, and budget allocations.

We believe...  

  • In treating people with dignity and respect.
  • High standards and expectations foster greater achievement.
  • People thrive in safe environments that each of us shares responsibility for the welfare of our community that diversity is an asset in our community.
  • Honesty and integrity are essential in building relationships.
  • Schools must provide access and equity in the critical role that public schools play in our democracy.
