Core values Closing the achievement gap and ensuring college success is the best way to help our students succeed in life, contribute to their communities, and overcome the obstacles they face. At IDEA Public Schools, we believe in the following core values to ensure college for all children: Closing the achievement gap and ensuring college success is the best way to help our students succeed in life, contribute to their communities, and overcome the obstacles they face. Achieving this requires the following beliefs and behaviors: No Excuses: We control our destiny. What we do during the day matters more than poverty, parent education level, or other external factors. When the adults in the system get it right, our students are successful. Conversely, when our students fail, we don’t blame unsupportive parents, parent education level, or other external factors: we look in the mirror and take responsi- bility. Whatever it Takes: Through continuous improvement we achieve ambitious results. Those most successful at IDEA seek feedback, pour over the data, identify root causes, and imple- ment solutions. 100% Everyday: Our mission and goals apply to 100% of our students, 100% of the time. Creating opportunities that didn’t exist isn’t easy, and it requires that people give their best every day. Sweating the Small Stuff: The difference between excellence and mediocrity lies in paying attention and caring about the countless details that go into effective execution. Team and Family: As the source of strength for our organi- zation, we are committed to attracting and developing high caliber people.
