We believe that all children in every neighborhood deserve access to an education that enables them to define their own life paths. Education is key to creating opportunity for students, strengthening neighborhoods, and revitalizing the City of Indianapolis.
We are committed to pursuing this vision by providing and promoting high-quality school options for students beginning with early childhood and continuing on through college and career. We believe collaboration with all community stakeholders is critical to our collective success. Our decisions are grounded in what is best for students and we take a comprehensive, long-term approach to education.
We believe our collective success depends on the success of each team member. We identify and attract individuals who strengthen our ability to excel. We hold ourselves and each other to the highest standards of professionalism, and consistently demonstrate a genuine care and concern for one another, our fellow education advocates, and all those engaged in this important work.
Integrity: We ensure our actions align with our beliefs and consistently follow through. While we work within a political context, we take a non-partisan approach to achieving our vision.
Leadership: We establish bold visions, set ambitious goals, and focus on results – as these are the best proxy for the interest of our children and our community. We plan purposefully, invest others in a shared vision, approach our work with urgency and optimism, persevere through challenges, work collaboratively, and seek feedback.
Community: We value the strengths, experiences, and perspectives of others. We assume the best in others and approach all interactions with respect and humility, while never sacrificing the broader good.
Team: We believe our collective success depends on the success of each team member. We identify and attract individuals who strengthen our ability to excel. While we hold ourselves and each other accountable to the highest standards, we are loyal and demonstrate a genuine care and concern for one another.
