The flag of the United States of America is a symbol for our nation. It stands for our shared history, the union of our fifty states, and embodies, self-sacrifice, hardiness, valor, purity, innocence, vigilance, perseverance, and justice.  The Center ISD Board of Trustees and administration believes in these ideals whole-heartedly and that proper reverence is demonstrated by standing when we pledge allegiance to our flag and while singing our national anthem. This will not change.  As a public school system we promote civic responsibility and the history and principles of the grand experiment that is the United States constitutional democratic republic for which our flag stands. This includes educating our students on the importance of standing in support of our shared ideals that we continue to work toward. Fundamental to our country are the rights that grant us freedom. That includes people’s freedom of speech and right to peacefully protest. While we may at times personally disagree with certain forms of permissible, free speech, we must and we do respect our students who exercise such rights in a peaceful, undisruptive, and legally permissible manner. More importantly we will continue to work together in our educational process to engage in the continuous improvement of our community, state, and nation so we may seek to reach our shared ideals for which our flag symbolizes and for which we are all proud to stand for.


La bandera de los Estados Unidos de América es un símbolo de nuestra nación. Representa nuestra historia compartida, la unión de nuestros cincuenta estados y encarna el autosacrificio, la resistencia, el valor, la pureza, la inocencia, la vigilancia, la perseverancia y la justicia. La Junta de Fideicomisarios y la administración de Center ISD creen en estos ideales de todo corazón y que la reverencia adecuada se demuestra al permanecer de pie cuando juramos lealtad a nuestra bandera y mientras cantamos nuestro himno nacional. Esto no cambiará.  Como sistema de escuelas públicas, promovemos la responsabilidad cívica y la historia y los principios del gran experimento que es la república democrática constitucional de los Estados Unidos que representa nuestra bandera. Esto incluye educar a nuestros estudiantes sobre la importancia de apoyar nuestros ideales compartidos por los que continuamos trabajando. Fundamentales para nuestro país son los derechos que nos otorgan la libertad. Eso incluye la libertad de expresión de las personas y el derecho a protestar pacíficamente. Si bien a veces podemos estar personalmente en desacuerdo con ciertas formas de libertad de expresión permisible, debemos respetar y respetamos a nuestros estudiantes que ejercen dichos derechos de manera pacífica, sin interrupciones y legalmente permisible. Más importante aún, continuaremos trabajando juntos en nuestro proceso educativo para involucrarnos en la mejora continua de nuestra comunidad, estado y nación para que podamos buscar alcanzar nuestros ideales compartidos que nuestra bandera simboliza y por los cuales todos estamos orgullosos de defender.
