  • Effective policies are developed by stakeholders within the school and community.
  • The school, the family, and the community should share the responsibility for giving the students the tools to meet the challenges of an ever-changing society.
  • Each student should be exposed to advances in technology to prepare them to become a competitive member of the work force.
  • Each student should develop career awareness through exploratory classes and community resources.
