604.11 – Community Engagement

Community Engagement in Colfax Mingo Community Schools is based on the philosophy that schools belong to the community and serve the entire community by providing education, recreation, and facility use for all community members. The Board of Education recognizes that education is a lifelong process and includes the preparation of individuals for democratic citizenship, providing individuals with means for economic improvement and cultural development, and the enrichment of the personal lives of all the participating individuals.

The physical facilities of the District shall be made available for use in these programs when there is no conflict with regular school activities.

Recommendations for extension and expansion of education programs shall be made through the Superintendent/designee.
