The county's School Board approved a set of core beliefs for all district schools at a meeting Monday (4/11) night.
Superintendent Tommy Pharis says these beliefs will build a foundation for his long-term plan to give every child the opportunity to learn in a way that's comfortable for them.
Says Pharis, "We control enough of the variables to ensure that virtually every child learns, and as a result of that, that's a different mindset ... that's a mindset that I'm very proud our school system has adopted."
The core values include the beliefs that 'all kids can learn,' and 'all kids come to school motivated to learn.'
They were written based on feedback from more than 400 teachers and community members during a series of 17 meetings.
