We have promised a safe, and secure environment to allow learners the best opportunity for success in learning. This can only happen when educators are aware of behaviors in the classroom and address social and emotional learning as part of an ongoing commitment to preparing young people for more than just academic knowledge.
We expect educators to accurately identify, address and document behaviors and communicate with families. We also expect educators to report misalignment with safety and behavior protocol, Student Handbook, and class created policies, setting a clear plan for action and goals to remediate misaligned behavior that can harm self, other learners or disrupt the educational process.
Educators should demonstrate consistency in addressing student behavior quickly, clearly identifying that we care about the students too much to allow them to learn habits that will distract from their positive development and learning. We expect educators to demonstrate that above all, they care about each individual and will facilitate reconciliation through listening to all sides of a story, identifying the root cause of the negative behavior (with help from the Leadership Team when necessary) and guiding through the process of asking for and offering forgiveness.
We expect clear and accurate documentation protocol to be followed, to protect yourself, the school, and learners. When behavior concerns arise, documentation will be used as part of an investigation to determine the best course of action. Educators should notify the Leadership Team of concerns, ongoing behavior patterns, and ask for assistance when necessary.
