Rio Vista Elementary School has adopted the Building Effective Schools Together (BEST) Positive Behavior Support program. The program works when every person in the school community – parents, students, teachers, administrators, support personnel – all have responsibilities in ensuring a safe, challenging educational environment that respects the rights and differences of all.
At Rio Vista, our rules (in each location of the school) are under the following categories:
School rules and behavioral expectations are taught formally at the beginning of each school year and reinforced throughout the school year. One example of a positive behavior support program that we are beginning this week is “Caught Being Good.” Students can earn tickets by being exceptional students, citizens, and helpers. When a student is caught being good by any staff member, they may be given a ticket that can be redeemed for prizes such as school supplies, games, homework passes, free Jamba Juice and pizza meals, movie passes, books, and much more. Winners will be recognized and announced every Friday. Donations of new or almost new items are needed as prizes, so please stop by the office and ask how you can help.
We encourage you to review the school rules with your child. We believe that by helping students practice good behavior, we will build a school community where all students have an environment where they can succeed and grow. We would like your input and involvement. Please contact us at school if you have any questions. Thank you for your continued support.
