Teamwork- We will value unity & respect and we believe we are stronger together. We will win when we work collaboratively as a team as opposed to working alone. We are a family. We will build our team around our common calling, trust, and mutual submission. We will NOT be about complaining, cynicism, gossip, suspicion or unhealthy comparisons. We value each person as a human being and treat everybody with courtesy and respect.
Commitment- We will value loyalty and commitment to the students, to our program and to each other. We will put aside our difference and stay committed to our cause.
Honesty- We value always telling the truth. We are committed to being proactive and honest in our communication, to making sure everyone knows what they need to know when they need to know it. We are intentional about extending grace and truth while protecting our relationships. We choose to not engage in the “meeting after the meeting” but rather say what needs to be said when given the chance. We will share complaints up and positives all around.
Integrity- We value the courage to do the right thing regardless of the consequences. We build integrity by doing what we say we are going to do, when we say we are going to do it. Maintaining our obligations to ensure compliance with all Federal and State Regulations and policies of the State Board of Education.
Flexibility- We think wet cement is better than hardened cement – we are a team that is willing to change. We do not repeat things because they worked. We do not believe “cut and paste” are methods that promote innovation and creativity. We are committed to continual learning and improvement.
Excellence- We will make the best use of all resources and opportunities placed in our hands. We will do the very best with what we have, always striving to be better tomorrow than we were yesterday.
Service- We value service and dedication to first our customers-our students. We will serve our students, staff, coworkers and community with love and kindness.
