Advancing Student’s Learning

P177Q mission of “We Do Care” is the moral

compass that guides our daily practice of ensuring

academic and social skills success for all students. In

addition to core academic content, students are

provided with explicit instruction in Social and

Emotional skill competencies. To ensure fairness and

equity in all educational decisions and protocols

members of the Equity Team collaborate with key

stakeholders. In the Spring term, members of the

Equity Team engage in collaborative conversations

with the Pupil Personnel Team to ensure all students

are assigned to classes that are academically and

socially appropriate. To promote and reinforce

opportunities for students to engage in positive social

engagement, on-going collaboration among the

members of Equity and PBIS occur. As a result

ot this collaboration, students’ Panther Point sheets

were revised to reflect greater access. Finally, to

ensure parents’ access and increased engagement

with all aspects of schooling, members of the Equity

Team work closely with the Parent Engagement

Team. The Monthly Parents’ Book Club is hosted by

members of the Equity Team and PTA.

Reinforcing Students’ Positive Behaviors

A Multi-Tiered System of Supports is utilized to promote students’ positive behaviors and to decrease inappropriate behaviors. Tier 1 Level of supports are proactive and prioritizes preventing inappropriate behaviors. Members of the PBIS team facilitate school-wide student assemblies to explain the school-wide expected behaviors for all students. Students learn that displaying the 5 school-wide expected behaviors leads to positive reinforcements. All students are expected to display the following: Communicate; Achieve; Respect; Engage and Self-Control (C.A.R.E.S). Teachers, parents and students are provided with lessons and videos to support the teaching and learning of the school-wide expected behaviors.Students’ efforts and successes are recognized and celebrated with the earning of Panther Points. Classroom reinforcers are designed to provide immediate reinforcement. However, students also have opportunities to earn weekly tangible and activity reinforcers. The Leaders’ Center is the reinforcement center, where students exchange Panther Points for preferred items. Due to Covid-19 safety precautions, students select their items on line in the virtual center. Items are then delivered by students who work in the Leaders’ Center.
