We believe school boards set the standard for our entire system to achieve at the highest level and should own the accountability for student outcomes. Our elected officials should set the vision, champion the needs of all students, and trust capable district staff to implement.
ROBUST FUNDING & RESOURCING
We believe investing in our children is one of the greatest responsibilities of our government and therefore call for funding excellence, not just adequacy, in our public schools. We believe that resources should be equitably distributed within and across districts.
EXCELLENT HUMAN CAPITAL
We believe that from the classroom to the administration building every leader should be centered on student learning and success. We know that excellent teachers and strong campus leaders are the school factors most highly correlated to student achievement.
QUALITY LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES
We believe that every student deserves to learn in an environment that fosters the development of their whole self. From innovative education models to thoughtful choice opportunities, all of our systems should center on investing in the potential of kids.
We believe accountability should be unobtrusive, holistic, and actionable. Evaluation for staff and students should be used as a learning tool that is embedded in real-world settings whenever possible, and results should lead to tailored support and pathways towards mastery.
