PORTLAND — The Board of Public Education will vote Wednesday night on a proposed slate of core principles that are meant to guide future budget and policy decisions.

The board will meet at 7 p.m. in Room 250 at Casco Bay High School.

The core principles support “an organization that strives for continuous improvement, with agreed-upon goals and evidence of progress.”

The principles also promote “leadership at all levels that supports student learning (through) financial and operational priorities.”

The district “demonstrates fiscal responsibility and effective long-term financial planning” and “celebrates and partners with the diverse culture of our community,” according to the principles.

The district also invests in staff to improve student learning, values adult learners and recognizes the benefit of the arts, technology, athletics and extracurricular activities in education.
