104 - Educational Philosophy

It is the policy of the Board of Directors that the Eddyville-Blakesburg-Fremont Community School District provide a qualified administrative, instructional, and operating staff and physical facilities that it can obtain within the limitations of the community’s ability and willingness to furnish financial support. 

It is the policy of the Board of Directors that its elementary schools and the junior/senior high school provide learning opportunities for all children of school age in the District consistent with the requirements of Iowa law.  In addition, the District supports providing educational and/or recreational programs through cooperative programming with other agencies and through self-supporting efforts by the program participants.

It is the policy of the Board of Directors that, so far as is educationally and economically feasible, students be treated as individuals with their own particular capabilities, aptitudes, and personalities and that students actively participate in the learning process. 

It is the function of the District to provide an educational process that gives students opportunities in a desirable learning atmosphere for obtaining the knowledge, experience, and skills, which careful individual study indicate, will prepare them to make a positive contribution to society and to themselves.

It is the policy of the Board of Directors that all students, regardless of whether they choose a vocation or further formal education, have satisfactorily completed a basic course of study as outlined in the current student handbook before being awarded a high school diploma.
