Our "Four Agreements": The Principles that Guide Us
Vista Unified School District's Family & Community Engagement Network created a set of guiding principles that we live by in our work with schools, families, and our community. We call them our "Four Agreements" and were inspired to create these from don Miguel Ruiz's The Four Agreements. This is a team-created philosophy of our values and beliefs that guide and unite us in our fundamental work supporting and connecting all of those in our schools and community.
1. Always demonstrate & serve with Love & Respect.
We are rooted in the community and in love. Everyone has a story, a culture, a unique life and place in this world - we honor each one as an important branch in our community tree. We encourage love, respect, growth, and unified engagement, always.
2. Meet the needs of our families, schools, and community.
We serve the needs of others through this motto: “Make it happen.” All needs are important and we value each one as such. Strong communication and positive partnerships are integral in meeting these needs. Never give up in finding the proper resources and methods for serving. Everything we do impacts a child - make it meaningful.
3. Collaborate and support as a Family and Team.
We are one with our community and families. Unite to make things happen within our Network and with our schools, families, and community. We succeed together, learn together, and serve together.
4. Be innovative, hopeful, and strong in empowering our families.
We share in the collective power between our schools, families, and community. We promote "Strength in Numbers" and "Knowledge is Power" and encourage our families to work together in meeting shared goals. Advocate. Innovate. Motivate. Persevere. Help families strengthen their knowledge, skills, and abilities as individuals and united community members. Spread courage and strength, motivate service and partnership, maintain community health and sustainability, inspire greatness and innovation.
