core values
Core Values
  • EQUITY Processes should be standardized so that all students have access and can participate, with the same breadth and depth of information being offered to each family.
  • TRANSPARENCY and INTEGRITYAdmissions processes should be transparent so that all participants understand what options are available to them, know how to access those options, and make informed choices
  • STUDENT-DRIVEN CHOICEStudents should be able to express their true preferences and have those choices honored to the extent possible. Choice processes should be student-centered, not school-centered.
  • ACHIEVEMENT and ACCOUNTABILITYA student-driven process should help create competitiveness amongst schools, increasing the number of high-performing schools and thereby promoting higher levels of student achievement. Families should be able to hold the DOE accountable for the administration of the choice process at the highest levels
