BELIEF STATEMENTS

 

Our mission is to develop in children the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to instill a lifelong love of learning and to become productive and contributing individuals in a changing society.

 

We believe that:

  • Everyone can learn and be successful.
  • Each student is entitled to the highest quality of educational opportunities.
  • Academics are the cornerstone of education; progress is evident in a child’s social behavior, demonstrable academic skills, self-esteem, and enthusiasm for learning.
  • Education promotes personal and social responsibility, and a spirit of cooperation.
  • Positive and nurturing classroom environments are necessary.
  • Education is the shared responsibility of the student, parent, school, community, and government.

Local Control Accountability Plan
The Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) is a required document that each California school district must prepare under new state budget laws.

Public hearings to review the final draft of the LCAP took place at the June 9 and June 16 board meetings.
