Closing the Achievement Gap Task Force

Policy Statement

The committee is dedicated to assuring that each child attains his fullest potential. High expectations will be maintained for every student regardless of economic, racial, or ethnic circumstances. It is the committee’s belief and understanding that the effects of the achievement gap are felt by all students and that closing the gap will, in turn, benefit the student body as a whole as well as the community. A well educated citizenry is in everyone’s interest and we call upon parents and the community to join as partners in this collaborative effort.
