    Children are our greatest resource.
    Children are the responsibility of their community and should be given the opportunity to reach their potential as healthy, productive citizens.
    It is the responsibility of public education to partner with families and provide exceptional academic instruction, role modeling, and opportunities for social success to each child.
    No child should be left behind.
