Discipline

We utilize a positive commendation system to reward good student behavior. The respect matrix outlines expected behavior. Students receive commendation card individually and as a class.They can exchange these cards at the end of the year for rewards. Our focus is always to teach our students to reflect and learn from their actions so they may become productive and respectful citizens.

We follow the DOE disclipline code.
