Students are the first concern of the Farmington R-7 School District and must receive the primary
attention of the Board of Education and all staff members. To fulfill its obligation to students the
Board of Education will strive to spend most of its time in formulating policy and considering other
matters related to students. A similar commitment is expected of all staff members. In pursuing this
primary goal, it is imperative that the good of the individual student be kept paramount.
One of the major tasks of the educational program shall be to assist each student in becoming self-sufficient in the utilization of decision-making processes and techniques, eventually becoming
responsible for determining his or her own learning purposes and the means for achieving them.
Staff members shall seek to be wise counselors of students and skillful facilitators of learning. To
this end, the Board of Education and staff members shall work together to establish an environment
conducive to the very best learning achievement for each student.
