An educational administrator's professional behavior must conform to an ethical code.  The code must be idealistic and at the same time practical, so that it can apply reasonably to all educational administrators.  The administrator acknowledges that the schools belong to the public they serve for the purposes of providing educational opportunities to all.  However, the administrator assumes responsibility for providing professional leadership in the school and community.  This responsibility requires the administrator to maintain standards of exemplary professional conduct.  It must be recognized that the administrator subscribes to the following statement of standards:


  1. Makes the well-being of students and the school system the fundamental value in all decision making and actions.

  2. Fulfills professional responsibilities with honesty and integrity.

  3. Supports the principal and due process and protects the civil and human rights of all individuals.

  4. Obeys local, state, and national laws and does not knowingly join or support organizations that advocate, directly or indirectly, the overthrow of the government.

  5. Implements the governing School Board's policies and administrative rules and regulations.

  6. Pursues appropriate and lawful measures to correct those laws, policies, and regulations that are not consistent with sound educational goals.

  7. Accepts academic degrees or professional certification only from duly accredited institutions.

  8. Maintains the standards and seek to improve the effectiveness of the profession through research and continuing professional development.

  9. Honors all contracts until fulfillment or release.
