Ridge View Elementary is committed to providing students with an emotionally and physically safe learning environment through the following supports:
- Students, staff, and parents are educated on rules and expectations at the beginning of the year and throughout the year as needed. Please refer to our “School-Wide Expectation Matrix”.
- Students will learn how to recognize bullying, report it, and resolve problems in a positive and productive way.
- Positive behavior is reinforced through the Principal’s PRIDE Club, Monthly Recognition Award Assemblies, Good News Phone Calls, and other class and school-wide behavior supports implemented through the Ridge View PRIDE Code and School-Wide Behavior Expectations.
- Consequences for student misbehavior focus on learning and are applied in a fair and consistent manner, respecting individual rights, responsibilities, ability, needs, age and maturity. Most situations can be resolved by working together (students, parents, teachers, and administrators). In the event of a significant behavior issue, students may be suspended in or out of school.
