  • Teachers are education professionals and must be supported as such.
  • All students should be allowed and encouraged to reach their potential.
  • Open communication between the school district, the board and the community is part of a healthy relationship.

A quality education means stretching each student to reach beyond what they are doing to find out what they can do.
