Duluth Edison Charter Schools
DECS Core Values
The expectations of students, staff, and faculty at Duluth Edison Charter Schools can be summed up in three statements:
  1. Be SafeEddie Eagle
  2. Be Kind
  3. Be Responsible
Our community is also shaped by our shared core values:
  • Respect
  • Responsibility
  • Compassion 
  • Justice
  • Courage 
  • Integrity 
  • Hope
  • Wisdom 
Character education is incorporated into the community life of our schools. Age appropriate behavior instruction is provided in classrooms and home base. We have a monthly core value focus that includes assemblies celebrating the core value and recognizing students who exhibit the core value. Community service projects like food drives, toy drives, and partnerships with nursing homes and other local agencies also provide opportunities for our students to practice these values.
