This policy guides the creation of school systems that deliberately and intentionally focus on relationships and teaching and learning on a human scale by providing quality and efficient support to our schools so that all students can be successful and all students believe that the education they are receiving is preparing them for college. We will know our impact by the experiences of our students as reflected in the following areas:
Teachers communicate academic expectations to students
Class work is challenging and rigorous
Students feel safe at school
Belief that the education they are receiving is preparing them for college
Adults respect students’ cultural backgrounds
Students respect each other’s culture
Students learn about different cultures
The buildings and grounds are clean most of the time
every student. every classroom. every day.
