Principles

A few notes from Washington State Law goals statement at..http://apps.leg.wa.gov/rcw/default.aspx?cite=28A.150.210

Goal 1 – in CamTech.we focus on ” … communication … ”

Goal 2 – in CamTech.we focus on ” … apply … ”

Goal 3 – in CamTech.we focus on ” ….integrate technology literacy and fluency … ” and ” … solve problems … ”

Goal 4 – we embrace the entire goal as core to our CamTech pathway ” … Understand the importance of work and finance and how performance, effort, and decisions directly affect future career and educational opportunities…. ”

In addition to the above our program pathway believes in the concept of ” nimble “… our programs and courses offered, and teaching strategies for those courses move, to meet the needs and interests of our students, who are our main customers.  Students’ job here is to create themselves and their futures. They are entrusted into our care for a short four years.  Our job as teachers and support staff is to help our students do their job to the best of their ability. To do that we will always be looking for the best way to get our jobs done well, together. Understand the importance of work and finance and how performance, effort, and decisions directly affect future career and educational opportunities.

A shortened statement that tries to capture all of the above, as offered by the Camas High School Futures Committee in 2014, is:.We are creative persistent problem solvers and thinkers who work well in teams.
