The faculty and staff of the Piggott School District believe that all students can learn and master basic academic skills regardless of their previous academic performance, family background, socio-economic status, race, and gender. The faculty and staff accept the responsibility for providing strong instructional leadership, a positive school climate, and a safe orderly school environment. Furthermore, we will maintain high expectations, frequently monitor student progress, and encourage a strong parent and community involvement.
The Board of Education recognizes that no one philosophy of education can express the sentiments or beliefs of all teaching personnel. Generally, however, education is perceived as a process of growth and includes the mental, moral, emotional, physical, and spiritual aspects of the individual. Each child is seen as a unique person who possesses certain potentials, needs, aspirations, and interests. As such pupil is different, it is the purpose of education to provide him or her with different experiences in school which will enable him or her to achieve his or hers maximum potential so that he or she may be a useful and productive member of society. It is understood that though all children will not learn all things equally well, all should have an equal opportunity in the pursuit of education; thus, the Board of Education will attempt to balance its program to provide for the varied interests and needs of the pupils of the schools. The Board of Education accepts the conclusion that the education of children is a comprehensive program which must be undertaken in cooperation with other institutions of society and will seek to establish and maintain strong ties with parents and community programs.
