Vision, Mission, Guiding Principles
To be a community school district where students develop the skills they need to change the world and the confidence they need to do it.

- Courage: Doing the right thing guides behavior and builds confidence.
- Curiosity: Life-long learners are curious about the world around them.
- Community: Parental and community involvement results in better outcomes; responsible and equitable resource management strengthens our schools and community; and good citizenship is modeled through service to others.
- Collaboration and Communication: Open, transparent and respectful dialogue with and among stakeholders about decisions and the decision making process reinforces trust and improves outcomes.
