• the learning environment and the planned experiences foster inquiry, critical thinking, questioning, predicting, exploring, collecting, reasoning, connecting, reflecting, and communicating

• learning is enhanced in a social, collaborative and safe environment which helps students to become members of a community of life-long learners

• students should attend the school designated to serve their home community and should be included in age-appropriate classes with developmentally appropriate programs

• the learning environment encourages risk-taking, provides challenges, and ensures that all students experience success in their programs

• learning opportunities promote confidence and cooperation and emphasize the development of a strong and healthy sense of self-worth among all learners

• learners will engage in experiences where they apply strategies from across the curriculum, using critical and creative thinking, to solve problems in real situations

• learning opportunities respect and support the racial, cultural, and social identity of individuals in a secure and healthy environment where learners are safe from physical and psychological harassment

• learning experiences at each grade level vary from "hands-on" to more abstract activities as students work toward achievement of expected learning outcomes

• learners are intelligent in many different ways, and programs and instruction recognize, value, and encourage the diverse ways that students construct and represent their knowledge

• assessment and evaluation will reflect the full range of student learning, using a variety of information gathering strategies, and providing a variety of opportunities to demonstrate what students know
