    Philosophy of Education of District 831

    We believe that education, in this district, must be continuously evaluated in order to be prepared for needed change. The school system must be a responsible pace setter in developing educational programs. Teachers and administrators should be encouraged and supported by the Board of Education to be open and creative.

    It is fundamentally important to develop mutual trust among parents, teachers, administrators and students. We believe it is the responsibility of these individuals to conduct themselves in a manner that, at all times, fosters genuine respect.

    We believe in order to achieve and maintain continuously improved educational programs, it is vitally important that the Board of Education, administrators, teaching staff and all other citizens of the district be willing to offer input to support programs, financially or otherwise, that will provide the necessary facilities, qualified personnel and creative ideas necessary for these programs.
