I want to take this opportunity to discuss with you the mission statement and educational philosophy of Elkton Charter School. The mission of Elkton Charter School is to recognize the unique community involvement of a small, rural school and the exceptional education that can be achieved through that community.
Elkton Charter School will provide a curriculum that is seamlessly articulated K-12, and aligned to the state standards to meet the Oregon requirements for a high school diploma. Taking advantage of the school’s location and staff talents, emphasis will be in the area of Natural Resources. Our students will be expected to design their personalized education plan, focusing on high, achievable goals, a strong work ethic, and self-motivation. Elkton Charter School will develop and maintain curricular content that is articulated K-12 and aligned to the state standards in English, mathematics, science and social science. The program for the Arts will be developed as art, music, metal shop, wood shop, agriculture, and automotive. Physical education will include elementary and secondary grades. The educational program, pupil performance standards and curriculum designed and implemented by Elkton Charter School shall meet or exceed applicable content standards adopted by the state and shall be designed to enable each pupil to achieve such standards.
Elkton staff will receive training in their specific content area(s); innovative teaching techniques; classroom management; curriculum development; charter school development and implementation; methodology related to effective practices within a small, rural educational environment; and other areas of professional development.
