School Safety Culture
Behavior, like academics, are learned over time. The behaviors that students engage in can tell you if students feel safe, if they feel like they belong, and if they take ownership of their own education. The Student Support Team (Director of School Culture, Social Workers, School Culture Monitors), aim to support students and teachers create a safe, positive school culture through a robust PBIS plan that puts restorative practices at the center.
