Guiding Principles

The Gayman staff are pleased to share “Gayman’s Guiding Principles.” Guiding principles are a set of beliefs, grounded in effective practice that govern actions of an organization. As a staff, we spent much of the 2012-2013 year engaging in conversations about promises, ideas, examples, and expectations of our school community. These belief statements encompass our philosophy and what we value at Gayman Elementary School.

It is now time to make our work public. Please click here to view Gayman’s Guiding Principles.
