SUPPORTING STUDENT LEARNING AND SOCIAL, EMOTIONAL, AND BEHAVIORAL DEVELOPMENT
Be Safe, Be Responsible, Be Respectful
At SCS we know that a safe, caring, respectful and orderly environment is an integral part of the learning process and a factor in student success. Adults maintain consistent, common language & practices across settings to address school-wide expectations before, during and after school.
Our goal is that students learn and develop the skills needed to independently make positive choices, learn from their mistakes and work cooperatively with others. Though teachers, paraprofessionals and staff are trained in respectful and effective methods to intervene with and redirect unexpected behaviors, students may need additional support and guidance in gaining and maintaining these skills. The Student Support Team, which consists of the Behavior Coordinator/ Coach, the Student Support Center Directors and the Behavior Specialist, reinforces appropriate behavior and supports the student to change or replace patterns of unexpected behavior.

The Student Support Center:
The Student Support Center located in the SCS office area, is a place where students can safely and confidentially problem solve upper Tier 2 & Tier 3 challenges, report any concerns they might have and learn to make positive choices. Students can be referred to the Student Support Center when they have shown that they need additional support in maintaining SCS's School Wide behavioral expectations, and may be referred to at any point through out the day by any adult member of the school community.
