5 Guiding Principles The District’s mission and vision statements are enhanced with additional stakeholder values that emerged through the research process. The purpose of the guiding principles is to establish a collective set of main beliefs and values that determine how the school district will work together to successfully accomplish the goals, objectives, and activities that constitute the Strategic Plan. We believe all students can learn and be successful. We believe a challenging curriculum, effective instruction, and rigorous standards are essential to prepare students for the future. We believe the use of research, assessment, measurement, and accountability can improve the quality of education. We believe professional development, supervision, and evaluation increase the quality of teaching and learning. We believe trust, collaboration, transparency, and active involvement of stakeholders are necessary for a climate of continual improvement in a diverse environment. We believe important and relevant information must be shared clearly and consistently throughout the District community. We believe our schools and communities are strengthened through fiscal stability and effective facility and resource management. 7/29/2013 5
