Values and Beliefs

We believe it is imperative that all students in Widefield School District 3 learn, grow and achieve. High levels of learning will be evident, ensuring achievement for every child, in every classroom, every day. It is core to our values to help students grow as individuals with integrity. Knowledge, data and research will provide direction for our decisions. We resolve to take action and follow through with a sense of urgency when needs are identified. We believe in supporting one another and respecting each other for our individual differences. Because we value diversity, we honor the unique qualities of each individual in our community and we want to continue to ensure our learners are in an inclusive environment that promotes individual success.

Furthermore, we believe that:

  • Every child will have sustained learning and achievement.
  • All teachers will be highly effective.
  • 21st Century Learning will be implemented in each classroom.
  • Learners will come to school prepared, ready, excited to learn and partner with their teachers to be successful.

These beliefs and values will guide the collective actions of the board of education to ensure that all students learn and maximize their potential.
