District Beliefs

District Beliefs

What we believe about student learning:

  • Every child has the potential for high achievement.
  • Every child must have access to rigorous work at every level.
  • Everyone is responsible for students learning.


What we believe about teaching:

  • Good teaching matters.  We must leave nothing about teaching and learning to chance.
  • Student work must be relevant and designed to actively engage students in learning.
  • Results matter.  Student learning must be frequently assessed and students who need extra help must receive it in a timely manner.


What we believe about schools:

  • Schools must be organized around the needs of students rather than the work or interests of adults.
  • It is our obligation to ensure that every child develops positive relationships with caring adults at every level.
  • Good character, citizenship, and employability count.  It is our intention that every student become a contributing member of society and the work force.
