Character Education

 

The Board of Education believes that while parents are the primary and most important moral educators of their children, the school and community should reinforce parental efforts. Therefore, the Board directs the superintendent to develop, with input from parents and other community members, a character education program.

 

The program shall be designed to help students cultivate skills, habits and qualities of character that will promote an upright, moral and desirable citizenry and better prepare students to become positive contributors to society, including:

 

         honesty

         respect

         responsibility

         courtesy

         respect for and compliance with the law

         integrity

         respect for parents, home and community

         the dignity and necessity of a strong work ethic

         conflict resolution skills

 

Teachers shall strive to model and promote the guidelines of behavior established in the character education program.
