Although many institutions within society contribute to the development of an educated person, it is the school which is the only agency that is specifically
charged with a formal and legal responsibility for the education of each student. In fulfilling these responsibilities, the schools within the Delaware Community School Corporation shall function under a basic philosophy which recognizes that education is a continuous process which provides for the optimum mental, physical, emotional, social, moral, and group, and individualized instruction shall be placed upon the acquisition of knowledge, concepts, skills, and values.
The focus of the school effort shall be the interaction of the student and the teacher in the learning process, RECOGNIZING PARENTAL INVOLVEMENT IS AN ESSENTIAL ELEMENT IN OUR EDUCATION PROCESS AND PROGRAMS. The Board of School Trustees recognizes that the optimum education growth of the students will be directly influenced by the ability of the Delaware Community School Corporation to provide and maintain the highest caliber of professional and non-professional personnel, facilities, equipment, and materials which may be legally and financially feasible.
The rapid changing world in which we live and the continual expansion of the learning process make it imperative that an environment be promoted which assures the professional staff the freedom to develop and maintain a vital curriculum and the opportunity to grow professionally.
