The Board of Education recognizes the importance of establishing core values as a guide in all that we do in accomplishing our mission. They are deep-rooted within us. They are not negotiable. They are the basic standards of conduct for dealing with each other. Our core values apply to each member of the Board and our Superintendent.
Integrity: Integrity is the foundation of our relationships; it encompasses openness, honesty, sincerity and respect. We respect and value the skills, creativity, knowledge and wisdom that each of us brings to our decision-making process.
Dignity: We believe that each of us can contribute to the quality of life in our school and in our community. We will always conduct ourselves in a courteous, respectful manner toward each other and toward our faculty, administrative staff, students, parents and the general public.
Accountability & Responsibility: We expect to be held accountable for our actions and we take responsibility for their results. We believe that the practice of these habits will increase the likelihood of success in all that we strive to achieve.
Excellence: Each of us is challenged to give and perform our personal best for the benefit of our school.
