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:
· respect for and compliance with the law
· 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.
