Arcola has adopted a school wide behavior plan PBIS (Positive Behavioral Intervention and Support). Please review our PBIS rubric at the end of this handbook.

    Our behavior plan is based on positive rewards and appropriate consequences.  (ROAR), which stands for, showing Respect, being ON-Task, Acting Safely and being Responsible.  These four areas will be a core focus of our behavior and discipline expectations. As part of our plan, we will support students that are not meeting  these behavior expectations with positive interventions that strive to correct the behavior, allow for growth and understanding, and maintain each child’s dignity. 

    Behavior interventions are outlined under discipline in this handbook and/or the Student’s Right and Responsibilities provided to each Arcola Family.  The PBIS rubric can be found at the end of this handbook. Please carefully review these guidelines with your children. By reinforcing these common behaviors, habits, and expectations both at school and at home, we hope that together we can guide children toward self-discipline and those attributes desirable for growing children.
