to advocate for all children.

and educational success through strong parent, family, and community involvement.


Accountability: We acknowledge our obligations. We deliver on our promises.


Respect: We value our colleagues and ourselves.

We expect the same high quality of effort and thought from ourselves as we do from others.


Inclusivity: We invite the stranger and welcome the newcomer.

We value and seek input from as wide a spectrum of viewpoints and experiences as possible.


Integrity: We act consistently with our beliefs.

When we err, we acknowledge the mistake and seek to make amends.
