• The Board believes parents/legal guardians, students, teachers, staff and administrators, board members, state and local elected officials, and the community share in the success of each individual student and the school system as a whole and, therefore, strives to create and nurture a collaborative relationship among all stakeholders.
  • All students deserve an equal opportunity for a quality education.
  • Intellectual growth occurs best:
    • Through a comprehensive and challenging curriculum that incorporates scientifically proven pedagogical techniques.
    • When parents/legal guardians, teachers, and students work collaboratively as equal partners in education.
  • A wide range of co-curricular and extra-curricular activities affords students, families and employees additional opportunities for intellectual, social, physical, and emotional growth.
  • There is value in diversity, and every student is endowed with unique talents and entitled to mutual respect.
  • The ability of Charles County Public Schools to fulfill its mission is dependent upon comprehensive long- and short-term planning and appropriate and efficient managerial organization.
  • A fiduciary responsibility to taxpayers exists and requires services rendered be appropriately tempered by fiscal responsibility.
