In May 2017, a District Strategic Planning Team of about 25 BOE members, administrators, teachers, support staff, and parents met for four days to develop a 3-year strategic plan for our district - Mission, Vision, Core Values and Beliefs.
One of our goals this year is to launch The Positivity Project PreK-12. The objective is to help students build strong relationships and to understand, appreciate, and exemplify the character strengths in us all. Each day teachers spend about 10 minutes teaching students about one of Positive Psychology's 24 character strengths.
This year we will also be focusing on implementing a fair and developmentally-appropriate Code of Conduct. We developed common definitions for all discipline infractions as well as a discipline schedule to help ensure that we are consistent in our response to student discipline issues.
