1700 Governing Principle - Removal of Barriers


A system of excellent schools prohibits illegal discrimination and harassment of staff and students, encourages tolerance and respect, and seeks to eliminate or lessen other barriers that may impede a student’s ability or opportunity to learn, including economic disadvantages, poor nutrition, ill-health and lack of transportation.  The board’s vision for removing barriers is expressed in the following board policies:
