Our School-Wide Positive Behavior Plan is designed to create a climate of cooperation, academic excellence, respect and safety within the middle school. The plan is based on seven guiding principles. We believe these principles create an optimal learning environment for our middle school students. The guiding principles are as follows:
I. Clear expectations for student behavior.
II. Clear and consistent strategies for teaching appropriate behavior.
III. Clear and consistent strategies for encouraging appropriate behavior.
IV. Clear and consistent consequences that discourage inappropriate behavior.
V. A support system and individual behavioral programs for students with unique or exceptional needs.
VI. Clearly designed methods for evaluating and revising the plan.
VII. The characteristics and philosophy of the behavior plan will be communicated to the students and parents.
