BOE Recognizes 9 Students: Typically during the April Board of Education Meeting, we recognize students that demonstrate the Six Pillars of Character and exemplify what it means to be a Redskin. Due to the Covid 19 restrictions, we were unable to meet in the traditional format causing us to miss this opportunity. As a district, we decided to recognize the students through our website and social media. Families received a phone call and teachers provided videos to point out the tremendous qualities of each student. A huge thank you to Carrie Knoch and Heather Bergman for organizing and posting.

PBIS Progress:  Despite social distancing, the PBIS Team has made significant progress towards its goal of full implementation of Tier I for this coming fall. The team has created a school store to provide students the opportunity to cash in points earned towards items like school supplies, privileges, candy and spirit wear. We have updated our behavior matrix to include expectations for all settings, including virtual learning. We have also prepared materials to educate families about our procedures and ways families can implement PBIS in their homes. 

TBTs Update: This year, we focused on strategies that we had previously implemented over the past four years. As always, the goal of the Building Leadership Team (BLT) is to provide the building's focus, its critical needs, evidence-based strategies and action planning as well as opportunities to improve through action planning.  In Teacher Based Teams, we research the selected evidence-based strategies, plan the implementation, implement and monitor progress. This year, we focused on co-teaching, interventions, Measures of Annual Progress (MAP) and Power of ICU. Next year, in addition to these strategies, we will add PBIS and Teacher Clarity.   

Go Redskins!
