B. Instructional Organization
In relating itself to the instructional program of the elementary and secondary schools, the Southbridge School Committee feels that it can make its most significant contributions to the improvement of the quality of the educational system.
It is in this area where the transfer of knowledge takes place that justifies the existence and clarifies the goals toward, which the committee continually strives.
In all its actions in relation to instruction, the committee wishes to emphasize quality as the guiding principle to be observed.
