Expectations & PBIS
We expect our students to live up to three fundamental principals of behavior:
► Be Responsible
► Be Respectful
► Be Ready
Elmwood's PBIS approach is designed to teach, support, monitor and celebrate the expected behaviors of students in all environments of the school day.
By following the 3 R's of Be Responsible, Be Respectful and Be Ready, all students will be prepared to face any academic or social challenge they may encounter.
Quarterly goals are established for each classroom in earning compliments from other students and teachers. Celebrations for reaching those goals are held at the close of each quarter.
All staff and students refer to the Elmwood Expectations Matrix to guide positive behavior in classrooms, the cafeteria, hallways, bathrooms and the gym during assemblies.
District 401’s Policy on Student Behavior
This policy’s stated goals and objectives are to provide effective discipline practices that:
(1) ensure the safety and dignity of students and staff; (2) maintain a positive, weapons-free, and drug-free learning environment; (3) keep school property and the property of others secure; (4) address the causes of a student's misbehavior and provide opportunities for all individuals involved in an incident to participate in its resolution; and (5) teach students positive behavioral skills to become independent, self-disciplined citizens in the school community and society.
