A district with students at its center provides an adaptable and responsible foundation for learning.

●Student and staff safety is essential to our vision and mission.

●Students, families, staff, and community members share the responsibility for student achievement.

●Student achievement and growth are driven by a highly-effective and respected staff working as a team.

●Students take an active and ongoing responsibility for their learning.

●Families are our partners in education.

●Community partnerships provide vital resources and opportunities for students and families.

●All students must have equitable access to learning opportunities, technology, and environments that support them in reaching their full potential.

●Diversity is a strength in our community.
