Help Your Child Succeed in School: Build the Habit of Good Attendance Early
It is Head Start’s goal to ensure a safe, positive learning environment for all children. Positive classroom climate contributes to positive behavior. Head Start’s discipline philosophy approach consists of five basic components:
In support of this philosophy and to ensure a safe and positive classroom environment, teachers will design and implement Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports (PBIS), Tier 1 strategies that set clear limits, model appropriate behavior, redirect inappropriate behavior, and work with families to solve unique problems.
All discipline procedures will adhere to Head Start guidelines and Portland Public Schools policies. Teachers will teach expectations and routines that support students in ways to Be Safe, Be Friendly, and Be Ready to Learn. These expectations and routines will be retaught throughout the year.
Parents will be informed of classroom expectations and routines. They will be engaged as partners in developing additional supports as needed.
The Portland Public Schools Board of Education voted unanimously to extend PPS Superintendent Guadalupe Guerrero's current contract by another two years during its Tuesday, June 25 meeting. Since he will be entering the third year of his original contract, the Board has committed to a total of five years through June 2022 with Guerrero at the helm. The approval came after board members offered a comprehensively positive review of his performance.
