OUR VALUES AND GUIDING PRINCIPLES:
 We believe…
        All students regardless of ability, race, ethnicity, gender or socio-economic status deserve the best education the community can deliver.
        In the transformational power of education for students at all levels of readiness, ability and achievement.
        In educating the whole child including a focus on physical, social, emotional and intellectual development.
        Education should be challenging, enriching, inspiring and fun.
        That diversity of thought, background and experience enriches teaching and provides learning opportunities for all students as they prepare to become citizens and leaders of the 21st. century.
        Streetsboro city schools are the foundation of our community and should be supported.
        In community involvement, volunteerism and investment in public education.
 We are committed to…
        Encouraging and supporting innovative curriculum and teaching methodologies that focus on educational effectiveness.
        Being flexible, adaptable and responsive to changing community needs.
        Funding projects that have the potential for broad (i.e. district-wide, across grade level) and/or long-term impact.
        Working in partnership with the school districts to understand educational priorities that will inform, but not dictate, Streetsboro Education Foundation’s funding decisions.
        Operating ethically, with the utmost professionalism and integrity, and with clarity, transparency and accountability in all that we do within the organization and in the community.
        Continual improvement and organizational renewal through on-going self-assessment, planning, and board development.
        A comprehensive approach to fundraising and responsible stewardship of all donations.
