Mission Statement

all belong learn and grow

Avon Community School, in its quest to prepare students for a changing society, will offer students educational opportunities that will provide them a productive fulfilled life.  


The Board of School Trustees recognizes that it has responsibility for educating all students in the Avon district, regardless of their abilities, race, color, national origin or creed.  It recognizes that the entire person comes to school, and that the school cannot ignore his or her health, character and total personality development.  However, it also recognizes that the school cannot assume complete responsibility for all aspects of student development, as the responsibility must be shared by the home, the church and the total community with its various organizations and environmental conditions. 

The school is but one of several institutions in society and community which are collectively responsible for the total educational development of students.  The basic responsibility of the corporation should be the achievement of those academic and physical development goals which are primarily those responsibilities charged to schools, and for which the other institutions of society and community do not assume major responsibility. 

The Board believes that the most important educational task assigned to the school is that of working toward the maximum intellectual development of students in an atmosphere that recognizes and nurtures the uniqueness of the individual.  Therefore, the corporation will concentrate its resources towards the development of an educational program to discharge that most important responsibility. 

The Board believes that the home, the church and the total community must assume major responsibility for other aspects of each student's development.  The board recognizes, however, that if the education of its students is to be complete, the developmental tasks of other community institutions must be supported and reinforced by the school.  Thus, the corporation shall assume shared responsibility for the physical, social-emotional and ethical-moral development of its students.
