Policy 100: Statement of Guiding Principles
An educational philosophy is a statement which in general terms describes the aims, purposes, and objectives which the school board hopes to achieve. An educational philosophy helps create a framework which assists the school board and professional staff to make decisions on specific situations and assess programs. It also allows the members of the school system to discharge their assigned duties with positive direction.
In turn, goal statements regarding the purposes and functions of the school district can be developed from the framework of the educational philosophy.
