Student Discipline and Behavior Support
The Student Discipline and Behavior Support Department (located on the former Bishop Spaugh Community Academy campus) provides programs and services for students with specific needs that have not been met in a traditional educational setting. In addition, the department provides services and strategies to facilitate a safe and orderly school environment. We help prepare students behaviorally for academic success.
The mission of the Student Discipline and Behavior Support Department is to develop a foundation for academic success by providing preventative and responsive behavioral support for all stakeholders.
To impact student achievement by cultivating positive relationships and inclusive environments through student-centered approaches that produce self-efficacy in behavioral education and practices.
Examples that clarify our purpose:
- Manage or modify student behavior
- Rehabilitate students to re-enter the mainstream
- Access and utilize student learning styles and communicate to the home school
- Identify/diagnose problems/needs of students
- Facilitate an effective learning environment for students who have violated rules in the code of student conduct
- Provide alternatives for students who have violated rules in the code of student conduct
- Allow students who have displayed behavioral issues to progress academically
