Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS)
The Positive Behaviors Interventions and Supports (PBIS) program is a proactive way to teach all students appropriate school behaviors. Students are taught school-wide expectations to Respect Yourself, Respect Others and Respect Property in settings throughout the building. Students that meet these expectations are recognized through bi-weekly celebrations that take place in the classroom and the entire school. Conversely, students who fail to meet the school wide behavior expectations are retaught appropriate school wide behaviors. Finally, through the PBIS program, behavior data is kept on all students in order to tailor interventions to best meet the educational needs of each student.
School Day
The school day begins at 8:30 am and ends at 3:11 pm.

Student Accident Coverage

5 months ago

By Christine Chambers

Parents have the ability to purchase 24 hour, football, and summer coverage at their expense.  Both policies are excess coverage of any other insurance that is in force. More information can be found at http://www.wcsit-isda.com/isda/student-accident.  Brochures and claim forms for both programs can be found here and here.
