The CP Way

The CP Way

Our culture is the heart of our school system. It makes College Place Public Schools a special place to learn and work, and it gives us a unique advantage. Building and sustaining the College Place culture requires intentional effort from everyone in the district. The CP Way is part of that effort.

Our core beliefs provide the standards for how we behave toward each other, our students and our community. Because culture shapes behaviors we choose, it determines how effectively we execute our mission. Success depends on our ability to collaborate and educate in a constantly changing environment. Culture aligns everyone in the district around a common set of beliefs & behavior choices that ultimately determine how we prepare our students for the future.

Please feel free to see the work we are extremely proud of here: "The CP Way"
