The Board of Education believes that all children are capable of
learning and the education of each child is everyone’s responsibility.
The educational success of each student depends upon a commitment to
excellence on the part of teachers, administrators, support staff,
parents, community members, the Board and the students themselves. The
goal of the district is to provide each student with a strong foundation
of knowledge and experiences to prepare him/her to be a productive
citizen and to value lifelong learning.

This nation is founded on the basic premise of the worth of the
individual. The soundness of each individual and the degree to which his
or her goals and hopes are realized help to shape the total society in
which we live. The Board of Education believes that the educational
process plays a substantial role in helping to maintain this basic
In order to prepare students to lead fulfilling and satisfying lives, it
is necessary to provide educational opportunities that include a broad
curriculum, a high quality professional teaching staff, adequate support
staff, sufficient and high quality educational supplies and materials,
and sound administrative practices to coordinate and supervise these
various factors. These educational services must be delivered to young
people in a way that is caring of each individual’s needs, but, at the
same time, demands personal effort and discipline on the part of each
student, appropriate to that student’s age and abilities.
The Board recognizes that formal education received at school is only
one of the avenues through which these goals can be reached. Family,
religious groups, and the community at-large are vital factors in this
process as well. In this respect, the Board wishes to work with all
groups to receive their input to the final benefit of all of the
children of the community.
The Board further recognizes that the school is a central focus in the
life of the community, serving many groups such as senior citizens,
special community-oriented non-profit groups, and adult learners. As
such, the school’s facilities and services can often be used for
excellent purposes by such adult groups.
The realities of the world are such that the financing of the
educational program is always a concern. The Board will plan its
educational program with an eye toward priorities which the community
has helped to identify. The Board recognizes that available resources
may limit the setting of some goals, no matter how worthwhile they may
appear to be.
