Members of the professional staff shall be encouraged to take an active part in the affairs of the community.  The school and the community should not be considered separate and apart, but as working as a unified whole in the educative process.  Through dynamic leadership, many avenues may be opened for building community support.


The Superintendent, especially, is urged to identify himself personally with the many facets of community life, providing opportunities for all citizens -- including non-parents -- to experience relationships with the schools.


The principal, as the leader of his or her school, is encouraged to be an active and leading member of the school community.


The teacher, or the degree to which the teacher is known and accepted as a citizen of the community, has a direct relationship with the degree of understanding and goodwill flowing from the community to the schools.
