  2. "Academic Excellence - While striving for academic excellence and providing opportunities for those students going to college, we also must provide opportunities for those not going to college. We should better develop our relationships with business leaders to determine what is needed for high school graduates to be productive as they enter the workforce.
  3. "Teacher and Principal Accountability - Strive to keep the best teachers and principals while attracting the best college graduates to be new teachers. Holding the educational staff, including principals, to the high academic standards for which our system is known."
