3. We believe Providence schools can and must be good places to teach and good places to learn.

We believe—

  • Schools must be safe, caring, and orderly environments that nurture effective teaching and learning.
  • Schools must value diversity among students, staff, and families.
  • Students, staff, parents, and community partners must demonstrate truthful, moral, and nondiscriminatory conduct.
  • We commit to creating schools that have positive cultures and are housed in high-quality facilities.

We will—

  • Maintain attractive, clean, and secure schools.
  • Renovate or replace buildings as necessary to accommodate 21st century learning and serve as community anchors.
  • Hold students, staff, parents, and community partners to clear and high standards of behavior.
