Philosophy-Goals-Objectives and Comprehensive Plans
The School Board recognizes that the success of our educational system relies heavily on educational planning and ongoing evaluation in order to adapt District programs and activities to the changing needs of society and the community. To guide these efforts, the Board adopts the following definitions for the development of sound and responsible educational policies:
  1. "Philosophy" means a composite statement of the relationship between the individual and society based upon beliefs, concepts, and attitudes from which the goals and objectives of the District are derived.
  2. "Goal" means a statement of broad direction or intent which is general and timeless and is not concerned with a particular achievement within a specified time period.
  3. "Objective" means a specific accomplishment to be achieved which can be measured within a given time and under specifiable conditions and which, if attained, advances the system toward a corresponding goal.

(cf.0100 - Philosophy)
(cf.0200 - Goals for the School District)

The Board believes that in order for education to succeed there must be an ongoing partnership between educators, parents/guardians, students, and the community. The Board encourages the participation of all segments of the community in order that an educational climate is created which promotes the positive and healthy development of each child.
