Rhodes School District 84.5

Rhodes Respect!

The main focus of Rhodes Respect! is to provide a clear system for all expected behaviors at Rhodes School. Through Rhodes Respect! we will work to create and maintain a productive, safe environment in which ALL school community members have clear expectations and understandings of their role in the educational process.

It will focus upon teaching children positive behaviors and changing children's environments so that they may learn from their choices and be accountable for their actions. The approach uses universal behavioral expectations coupled with positive character building to help students achieve important social and learning goals. When good teaching and good behavior come together, students will excel in their learning. As part of the Rhodes Respect! approach, we have established universal expectations for behavior in all areas of our school.

Furthermore, we will actively teach, model, and reinforce our Universal Expectations of Respect for Ourselves, Respect for Others, and Respect for Learning, and Respect for the Environment. Students will be instructed in what respect looks like across all settings of the school i.e. classroom, hallway, cafeteria, etc. We will explicitly teach these expectations to our students and reward them frequently with positive notes and incentives for their great behavior. By detailing expected behavior, we will provide a common language for everyone and will build a school community in which students will excel. .
