Behavioral Expectations

Resilience Ownership Community Kindness

Why do we have School-Wide Behavioral Expectations?

Having a few simple, positively stated behavioral expectations facilitates the teaching of these expectations across school settings because teachers will be using, and students will be hearing, common language. By focusing on only four expectations, it is easier for students to remember. It is also important for staff because instruction focusing on only a few expectations will improve teaching and consistency across staff through the use of a common language.

Why are these positively stated Expectations relevant?

Positively stated expectations are important because research has shown that recognizing students for following the rules is even more important than catching them breaking the rules. By stating expectations positively, the hope is that staff will be more likely to use positive language when catching students engaging in the appropriate behavior.
