Bullying Prevention & Character Education
As we work toward helping every student become proficient in reading and math, we must also address those issues that may impede students’ ability to learn. Students who lack pro-social skills make poor choices resulting in consequences that impede their learning. Just as students are taught to add, subtract, and read, they must be taught to empathize, manage their emotions, control their impulses, and solve problems effectively and appropriately. To accomplish this, students in preschool through grade 8 receive direct instruction utilizing the Second Step curriculum. High school students receive direct instruction utilizing the School-Connect curriculum. Both Second Step and School-Connect provide a research-based vehicle for students to learn invaluable skills in the areas of empathy, anger/emotion management, impulse control, and problem solving.
As we increase the systemic awareness of bullying and other inappropriate social behaviors through on-going training, our students ultimately benefit. We are able to facilitate positive relationships within our schools, with our families, and with our community. More importantly, we are able to provide our students with pro-social skills that will positively impact their lives, prepare them for productive futures, and truly help them become life-long learners.

Restorative Justice Practices
Restorative Justice empowers students to resolve conflicts on their own and in small groups. The idea is to bring students together in ideally peer-mediated small groups to talk, ask questions, and air their grievances.
