• The employees of the Charter School will demonstrate their belief in the value of lifelong learning and model the appropriate and desired behaviors and attitudes expected of students.
• The Charter School community will work cooperatively and collaboratively to create a child-centered environment in which all partners are empowered by their own sense of ownership and responsibility to the school.
• The Charter School community and partners will maintain the highest level of integrity in fiscal management while seeking all available resources and using them effectively to support the instructional program.
What is a Charter School?
Charter status has allowed every member of the FCPS school community to participate fully in the transformation of the schools. The result of this collaborative effort has been total accountability in every aspect of the management, operation, and governance of the school, higher student achievement across all grade levels, and continuous focus on a school-wide vision.
