Core Values

Core Values

Emphasis on Student Achievement
We believe that all students can learn and all students will have access to a positive and challenging learning environment based on California state standards to ensure students realize their individual potential.

Build Home, School and Community Partnerships
We believe in strong partnerships and regular communication with parents and community members to help our students maximize their options, learning and interests.

Safe and Clean Schools and Facilities
We believe students and staff should be housed in learning and working environments which are clean and safe.

Quality People & High Standards
We believe in recruiting, training and retaining highly qualified employees who maintain high moral and ethical character and consistently exhibit a positive example, exemplary attitude, genuine caring and great enthusiasm.

Fiscal Responsibility
We believe it is our responsibility to spend the funds entrusted to us to obtain the greatest educational opportunities for our youth. We must also protect and preserve the fiscal health of the District and maintain a prudent reserve. To achieve these ends and to maintain the public’s trust, we will engage in clear, honest and open dialogue with all stakeholders in a professional, cooperative and problem-solving manner.

Principled Relationship with Employee Bargaining Units
We believe in principled relationships and meaningful negotiations with employee groups to advance student achievement, employee interests and the District’s core values.

Long-Term Stability
We believe the stability of quality programs, including ongoing professional development, leadership, teachers and classified staff over time, is essential to the long-term success of our students and District.
