The Board affirms its responsibility to assume a leadership role in affecting community attitudes in relation to our society's needs. A vital part of this endeavor is the creation of a climate within the schools which enhances the dignity and importance of each individual. Equally important is the strengthening of steps which have been taken to promote a feeling of understanding, trust, and acceptance among persons of differing races, colors creeds, and backgrounds.
In order to develop these attitudes in our school children, the Board intends:
- To emphasize human relationship and intergroup relations as an essential part of teacher in-service and other employee training programs.
- To develop curricula which uses every opportunity to present the many ethnic, racial, and religious strands that are a part of the American fabric.
