  • Children thrive and experience success when we provide instruction and opportunities that value individual abilities and interests.

  • Equal access to our district’s programs and services will be afforded to all children.

  • All children and staff deserve a safe, secure and supportive school environment.

  • Schools excel when staff engage in continuous improvement of practice and life-long learning.
