Each student who attends Brownsville has the right to a safe education in a positive learning environment. No student has the right to interfere with another child’s ability to learn or to feel uncomfortable in that learning environment.
Our philosophy is built on the following principles:
- Cooperation and communication by school and home greatly improves student behavior.
- All students can behave appropriately.
- All students have human dignity and worth.
- Appropriate behavior should be taught and reinforced at school and home.
- Students need a climate of warmth and support to make appropriate choices.
- Behavior is reinforced by its consequences, both positive and negative.
- Students need to be informed of rules and consequences many times throughout the year, prior to those consequences being imposed.
- Students are accountable for their choices and actions.
- Behavior modification is a learning activity.
Discipline is a shared responsibility between student, parent and staff working together to promote a safe and positive learning environment. Four “C”s guide our work with your child:
Our district Student Rights and Responsibility guide includes a discipline code of conduct and potential consequences for inappropriate behavior. Our staff develops and regularly reviews with students classroom rules and consequences.
