The Bozeman Public School System invests in its students because they are the future. Families, community and educators work collaboratively to meet the diverse needs of all students and to achieve the goal of educational excellence.

Everything that is done must be good for children.

The School’s decisions are based on educational soundness, not personal comfort or political expediency. We realize that to continue educational excellence in our world today is to be open to change. We are investigating, learning, trying, exploring, fine-tuning, and constantly leading change. We want to create an environment in our district that is demanding but nurturing, rigorous but compassionate, safe but risk-taking, fosters both independence and collaboration, and requires accountability as well as involvement from everyone

Bozeman Schools Basic Beliefs

ABOUT STAFF

We employ and keep well-qualified, dedicated staff. Diversity of opinion and varieties of teaching styles are encouraged. It is expected that the work of all employees supports the mission of the district. In a time of tight budgets and increasing number of students, we don’t ask people to do the impossible. Work assignments are commensurate with resources and support available.

ABOUT STUDENTS

We believe that, given the right circumstances, all students can and must learn. They must leave our schools prepared to be productive citizens, able to work, and ready to be life-long learners. Students are treated with respect, dignity and warmth so that they will want to come to school. Each student is special and brings unique gifts and needs to school. We celebrate individual differences, take students as they come to us, and provide for differences in abilities, needs and learning styles. All school district staff are advocates for the needs of children.

ABOUT COMMUNITY AND PARENTS

Community involvement and support is essential for effective schools. Parents are their children’s first teachers and most central to their lives; therefore, they must be major participants in the educational process. Parents and community need to be involved in planning and implementing the education program of the district. 

ABOUT RESOURCES

Our resources go directly to the instructional process, as much as possible. We are good stewards of the funds we receive from the public. We are responsible for taking care of the schools and other facilities our community has entrusted to us. Our buildings and equipment need to be safe, attractive and comfortable. Our excellent school system promotes economic viability in Bozeman and Montana.
