- Our School
Throughout the school year, students will be taught the four expectations. Teachers will help students learn what the expectations "look" and "sound" like in every setting during the school day. These lessons will be re-taught and reinforced throughout the school year and become a regular part of our instructional program.
Acknowledging and reinforcing positive behavior is one of the best ways to change inappropriate behavior. At April Lane each student will earn PAW tickets for meeting behavior expectations. When goals are met, students will enjoy taking trips to the PBIS PAWS STORE every Friday during lunch recess, as well as participating in periodic PBIS events.
Even with clear expectations and positive reinforcement, sometimes children will misbehave. To address inappropriate behavior, a Referral Form has been implemented. Discipline issues are divided into major and minor infractions.
- Major infractions are issues that result in office time. Parents/guardians will always be notified by the principal or teacher about major infractions.
- Minor infractions are behaviors that are disruptive to the learning environment, but are handled by the supervising staff member.
April Lane recognizes that sometimes families need information and support to help students be successful at school. April Lane staff provides a Parent Request for Assistance form that you can fill out and submit. Then an April Lane staff member will contact you within two days of your referral, and all information will keep confidential.
