Section 1000: Foundations and Philosophic Commitments
The Foundations section consists of statements which clarify the foundation principles of the public school enterprise. The school board is a legal entity - an autonomous body created by the legislature - intended to function in a democratic manner.
The Philosophic Commitments, stated as an educational philosophy, serve to guide the directions, actions and determinations of staff and board. The philosophy should be interpreted by goals and specific objectives, the achievement of which should be assessed through a comprehensive and efficient evaluative program.
