Zanesville City Schools looks for the highest quality people to join our faculty and staff. We believe the cultural diversity of our community brings strength and unity to the learning environment and that respect for individual differences is critical to the educational process. We believe our students can learn at high levels, in different ways and at different times when provided equal opportunities. We believe we must provide relevant, meaningful learning experiences so that our students are active, literate and self-directed learners. We believe our schools must be safe, child-centered environments with equal access for all to the educational process. We believe our staff and community must promote and model life-long learning for students throughout our school district. We believe our students must be prepared to function in and adapt to a changing and diverse society. We believe that a superior and well-funded school district is the foundation for student learning and a prosperous community. We believe strong interaction among the family, school, and community, based on mutual trust, honest, and open communication supports student learning.
