The commitment of the Van Buren School, in partnership with our community, will provide superior educational opportunities for all children, to establish a foundation for a life of learning, personal success, and social responsibility.

That is in complete contradiction with the statements suggesting that we value diversity and acceptance toward all. Every major religion throughout the world holds the same principle values as Christianity. To single out one religion alludes to the idea that it is superior to others, despite the fact that we have students, parents, and community members of varying backgrounds who are support contribute to our community.

I have noticed over the years of having 3 of my children progress thru the school system, that the 2 that struggled academically were lost in the system until I had to push for more indepth attention and guidance. is able to adapt to each student no matter what their level of learning is and be able to provide opportunities to those children who struggle academically.

Schools should want to be like Van Buren because of the excellence reached by VB. gives all students the same opportunities, but does not cater to people who do not take advantage of the opportunities presented. Students should not get a false idea of what life in the real world is like. Students should be held to a high standard, but as should teachers, administrators, and coaches to ensure that they are putting students in advantageous positions to be successful.I disagreed with the fairness question in the context on the previous section of the survey because I feel that fairness has sometimes outweighed reality in Van Buren. Fair opportunities should be presented to students, but the actual results and success of students will never be fair because no students are the same. Treating students like they are the same is doing them a disservice.

I graduated from, and my children attended the VB school district. Over the 18 years I was involved with the district as a parent, I noticed a distinct decline in the level of professionalism in the teachers, administrators and coaches. Teachers spent more time offering unsolicited opinions and advice on their students personal lives instead of educating them. While I believe that all educators should care for the well being of all students, too often VB teachers, administrators and coaches conducted themselves as if their role was more important than a parents in a child's life.

Right now the leadership is poor, so there is no teamwork. Teamwork is only successful if everyone and everyone's ideas are respected. If everyone worked together to make the school a better place there would be a positive attitude toward the school, but that's not going to happen if we don't have good communication at every level and every aspect of the school. A good school is one that has good leadership and all employees are respected and treated fairly. Everyone has to follow the same rules and contribute positively to the school district. One or two people can't dictate what direction the school is going, that has to be done by many representatives. Good communication and teamwork can accomplish a lot. All aspects of the school need to be looked at when striving to be a "good school."

In order to have that, communication is key, so that there can be trust among all aspects of the school, from administration, to staff, students and the entire community. Prepares students for their respective future, whatever it may be. This is something that I believe can be very effective for the school district, but simplicity is important. It should be something that everyone can easily understand and follow. For everyone to share these values or have the same mission, it can't have too much.

Designs facilities and curriculum, and provides opportunities that meet those student needs. Good staff which are rewarded and appreciated, Bad staff are not tolerated, and there is a connection and pride with the community that results in strong community support.Today's students have different needs than past generations. The district must continue to adapt to those needs. Failing to do this puts the students behind and will cause the district to fall behind.

However I do believe that It is should be considered one of the "top 5" on the list of things that is important for a school district to have on the list of qualities!A good school is one that is welcoming, inside and out. A good school has a caring staff, from teachers, administrators, maintenance, bus drivers, etc...
A good school provides creative and innovative, up-to-date courses that can compete with current trends, or even stay a step ahead.
A good school provides opportunities for quality staff in-service, encourages staff to attend professional conferences to stay abreast with current teaching trends and ideas in their teaching field and to remain enthusiastic and motivated about teaching, and avoid teacher burn-out.
I pretty much shared these thoughts in the Open Dialogue section. The same applies here.

Teamwork is also important because good leaders should also know how to work as a team and collaborate with others. Innovation is an important value for students to have because innovation leads to new ideas, which leads to new opportunities and a better, more effective world. Integrity is important because it encompasses a lot of moral values that all students should have to make them a better person. Excellence is also very important because ultimately, a school should be preparing the student for the next step in life and to succeed in what they do. provides a well-based education to all students and prepares them for the next step in their life. A good school should be able to produce quality students that know moral values and have the ability to lead, work as a team, and come up with great ideas that can impact the world for the better. The school should be able to educate students, not just with knowledge, but also morals and helping students make decisions while being supportive of those decisions. A good school should also be aware, examine, and consider student and community proposals.

Without any of those there is nothing pushing a student to be successful in whatever they want to do. Something I find as a big issue is that their is an extreme lack of encouragement from the staff and some of the staff members make comments that destroy students confidence.A good school is one that offers a variety of courses with an opportunity to do whatever the student wants to do.

In the real business world, companies are looking for individuals who innovative and can think on their feet and have the ability to develop solutions to difficult problems. The ability to do this has to start in programs developed throughout K-12. Secondly, diversity and respect for different individuals and cultures is paramount in today's business world. Company's don't care about the color of your skin, but the knowledge you bring to the table that benefits that organization. Respect and diversity has to start from the beginning of a child's development; especially in an area that does not have a lot of diversity in its students. Thirdly, students now and in the future will be competing for jobs based on their knowledge and achievement of excellence in their area of specialization. That does not start when you enter the working world. Students need to be taught those traits and values early in life throughout their early (K-12) learning process. By the time that students enter college, they should already be competitive and strive for excellence. That is what drives them, at that point, to achieve for success. not only strives to achieve all of those core values that I listed above and demonstrates this through benchmarking on how many students come out of college with excellent grades, honors, and are successful in their future employment. When I reference college, I also mean trade schools, etc. The mission of the school should always relate to this in some manner. We send our kids to school to create opportunities for the future down the road. If a school is unable to ensure that those opportunities will exist for a student who have been responsible and have contributed to their education throughout their school years, then that school system has failed their students. No school system is perfect, but the system should strive for perfection. That requires commitment to the best teachers who not only have teaching degrees, but who have a vested interest in the success of the students and the institution. It starts from the top administrator down to the lowest support staff. I think I have said enough. I am very passionate about the school system providing a high quality of education for the Van Buren students. I am talking about these students lives, not only today, but their future. If these students don't get a high quality of education from K-12, it will hurt them for the rest of their lives.

There is currently a prevailing attitude of 'don't worry about what you do, someone else will clean it up, or fix it, just keep doing it". Which in turn is teaching, by example, students they can do or treat property, an in some cases other students, any way they want without any responsibility or consequence.not only teaches and demonstrates the values listed above but also strives to meet the educational needs of all students. Not demanding every student learn how the teacher teaches, but demanding every teacher teach how the student learns. Student who learn, differently (i.e., auditory, visual, tactual, etc) need to be considered when choosing curriculum and teaching methods, currently not all options or learning processes are being used. Student conforms learn like everybody else or they are just overlooked, labeled as difficult, unteachable, or worse.

Communication is the fundamental key to ensure all involved have information and able to listen to receive the intended feedback too. Over communicating will minimize miscues.

Innovation and creativity could be similar and are important for staying on top of the latest technology developments, solving problems, etc. It was reported that the USA innovation pace pertaining to new technology/inventions has lagged behind prior decades.

Knowledge is one of the major elements to measure success within the school system. Gaining the additional education should increase one's knowledge.

Excellence is the overall goal for the school and community to achieve and to either benchmark from other excellent districts or become that excellent district to be the benchmark. If Findlay and Hancock County are the #1 rated small metro community in the USA. Shouldn't our district reflect excellence with being in Hancock County too?
Note the above comments about values and a good or maybe it should be great school is reflective of it's core valuesWe can have the best intended Vision, Mission and Values in the world, but without solid leadership within the school system it will fail. Obviously, community support is pivotal.

I'm not saying they aren't important. No one sets out to provide an unsafe learning environment, or strive to produce irresponsible, disrespectful students. What school wouldn't strive for excellence? Some of these are just the intrinsic values of a school, and represent where we are now. We shouldn't discard safety, but rather build on top of it, like a foundation.A good school is one that prepares students to be successful in life. Whether that is college and career, straight into career, or some hybrid in between, students should be prepared for their future. Pointed in the correct direction at least.

Students and staff must be held responsible for maintaining safe and secure learning environment and community.

Integrity in that students, staff, and members of the community should be held to a standard and tasked with upholding specific common values that will create that safe and productive environment.

The idea of a functioning school system revolves around the dedication of community members and faculty to the welfare of the student and providing them with the clearest possible pathway to success

Empowerment embodies most of these qualities in one but it stresses individual self worth and puts the power in the hands of the individual to enact productive change. At every level, if the goal is to empower each faculty member, administrator, teacher, and student to make the necessary changes to ensure that they are being as productive as possible in their individual role, it will reflect in the overall image of the school district.
Has the firm support of their community which provides a safe environment in which the school can function. A schools system that lays out a very specific set of values that act as a base on which to build on. A set of administrators that empower teachers and promote knew and better ways to engage students and stress personal relationships with both students and staff. A dedicated core of teachers that allow themselves to be not only instructors but mentors, helping to create a pathway to success, but empowering students to find success on their own. And a student body that is held responsible but given a safe place to learn and mature into adults. A clear and specific core mission statement and vision that can be somewhat concrete and can be used as a foundation on which to build. For example I think Judeo-Christian beliefs isn't as universal as it may sound and is up for interpretation, being more specific and clear would allow for that foundation to be set.
