The educational program of the St. Charles R-VI School District will provide for formal studies
to meet the general academic needs of students, character education programs and opportunities
for individual students to develop specific talents and interests in the performing arts, practical
arts, vocational-technical education and other specialized fields.
The various instructional programs offered by the district will be developed with the view toward
maintaining a balanced and sequential curriculum that will serve the educational needs of all
school-aged children in the district. The curriculum will also meet requirements established by
state law, the Missouri State Board of Education and the Missouri Department of Elementary and
Secondary Education. A written curriculum guide for all subject areas will be developed by the
staff and reviewed and approved by the Board of Education.
The Board of Education is committed to educational excellence through the development of
communication and computational skills among the district's students. The Board will adopt
specific requirements to ensure that high school graduates are sufficiently competent in these
important skills. The instructional program will also provide a planned sequence in language arts,
social studies, science, fine arts, industrial and practical arts, health and safety, vocational-technical education and physical education. At all levels, provisions will be made for a wide range
of individual differences in student abilities through the use of a variety of materials, adjustments
in programs, and courses adapted to special needs of students.
The ultimate aim of the instructional program will be the development of proficiency in each
student's ability to read well, write legibly, spell accurately, listen attentively, communicate
effectively, think critically, use basic mathematical/computational skills correctly, observe
carefully, solve problems, participate effectively in groups, maintain a healthy lifestyle, enjoy
aesthetic experiences, and develop interest in and/or start career development.
Any instructional program which is required by state or federal law will be provided to students,
and procedures will be developed to ensure requirements are met.
