Philosophy: 

To maintain high standards of achievement, good behavior is imperative.  In order to have and keep a safe and orderly school environment, we teach and reinforce school-wide expectations and routines.  We expect students and staff to treat each other with respect so that learning is not impeded.  Our school-wide discipline plan is designed to reinforce school wide and classroom expectations. With a balance between Positive Behavioral Interventions and Responsive Classroom strategies, we are creating a supportive environment that encourages positive behavior and student success.
