The Governing Board believes that public education is essential to a democracy. In order to have a populace that is literate, educated and productive, there must be an ongoing partnership between parents/ guardians, students, educators, and the community.

To prepare students to succeed in our increasingly complex society, the schools must be guided by:

1. A philosophy that puts the needs of students first

(cf. 0100 - Philosophy)

2. Goals that set the educational agenda

(cf. 0200 - Goals for the School District)

3. Comprehensive plans that ensure consistent, thoughtful and well-coordinated efforts to fully develop all students' capabilities

As part of its responsibility to establish a vision for the district, the Board shall ensure that the district's philosophy, goals and comprehensive plans are clearly articulated and regularly reviewed.

(cf. 9000 - Role of the Board (Powers and Responsibilities))
