St. Louis SCHOOLS St. Louis Apartments

At St. Louis Apartments, we understand the importance of education in today's society. Parents want nothing more than to place their children in schools where they know their children will be in good hands. Especially when moving to a new area, parents want to make sure that there are appropriate schools nearby. Researching specific needs and wants for their children's education is the first step that any moving parent should take.

A simple phone call to the school's district will answer most of your questions, but not all. Some cases may require a visit to a counselor who is more than willing to help a parent find the right education and school for their kids. The internet is also a very useful source for information regarding ANYTHING related to your child's education. Here is a link to the St. Louis Public Schools website.

Governance Team Standards of Practice

We, the members of the St. Louis Public Schools Governance Team recognize that district success will come only if we commit to work together towards our common goals. We also recognize that our words and actions serve as a model of professional behavior for our students, teachers and staff. Therefore, we commit to following these Standards of Practice in order to provide outstanding leadership in service to the children of our community:

1. We will maintain our focus on teaching and learning. Our first and greatest concern will be the students of the St. Louis Public Schools.

2. We will establish and follow communication protocols between the board and superintendent and between and among board members. This means we will:
- actively and respectfully listen when our colleagues speak
- turn off cell phones and pagers during meetings
- respect established protocols relating to communications with staff
- share pertinent information in an appropriate and timely manner with the superintendent and fellow board members
- commit to understand and then to be understood.

3. We will focus on policy and outcomes and leave the day to day management of the system to the superintendent and his staff.

4. We will respect the dignity and trust inherent in our office and conduct ourselves professionally at all times. This includes:
- preparing for board meetings
- respecting appropriate confidentiality of board business
- engaging in professional development as needed to be highly effective governance team members
- focusing on issues, not personalities, thus avoiding the creation of a public spectacle
- not using the board meeting forum as an opportunity to "grand stand."

5. We will model trustworthiness in our relationships with each other, with our superintendent, and with our constituents.
