The Carbon Valley Board of Directors believes that leadership occurs throughout the organization.
Leadership is formal, through positions with formal authority including:
- Board of directors
- Executive director
- Student leaders
Leadership is also informal, through the contributions of influential members of the Carbon Valley Academy community.
Leadership is the responsibility of both formal and informal leaders to promote the vision and mission of Carbon Valley Academy.
Such leadership develops and sustains a positive, student-centered organization and culture through communication and decision making which is uncompromisingly truthful, transparent, and respectful. It ensures that students feel safe and respected by staff and other students. It holds individuals and groups accountable for actions consistent with core values and goals.
Such leadership sustains high morale and motivation by sharing decision making authority, within boundaries, with those who are accountable for results. It develops understanding and earns the loyalty of students, their families, and staff through consistent and constant telling and retelling of the Carbon Valley Academy story. It always focuses on the execution of decisions and the results achieved.
It is grounded in trust, caring, and positive relationships.
