Behavior Approach: When a scholar makes poor choices exhibiting
unacceptable behavior (behaviors that disrupt the learning environment), teachers act firmly, consistently reiterating and upholding the school behavior expectations taking extra care to be respectful while modeling with body language and words. Logical consequences are established, and teachers work with colleagues, the scholar, and parents to help the child choose to learn and choose culturally acceptable positive behavior in the future.
