Ethical Standards for the Open House Community

To the best of my ability I will:

• Be familiar with and respect the mission, policies, and procedures of the school.

• Support and participate in school activities.

• Communicate concerns regarding school policies or staff directly to the school.

• Value and build partnership with the Open House Community.

• Respect and support the individuality and diversity of all members of the school community, including differences in teaching styles, learning styles, parenting styles, and lifestyles.

• Demonstrate integrity and responsible behavior.

• Encourage and support the peaceful resolution of conflicts.

• Respect the privacy of other families and students in the school community.

• Communicate openly and honestly with other families in the school community regarding the health, safety, and well being of our children.

• Be open to new ideas and be willing to learn from the suggestions of others.
