We are proud to announce the implementation of our Positive Behavior Intervention Strategy (PBIS) behavior expectations, which is DREAM. DREAM stands for Dedication, Responsibility, Etiquette, Attitude and Motivation, our motto is "Your Future Vision and Goals Starts with Dream Behavior".
At W.A.Y Academy we believe that our staff, students and community members need to behave in the “DREAM” manner, to achieve academic success and to ameliorate our community. Implementing the “DREAM”, as our PBIS framework, means that we are focusing on teaching our kids proper behaviors in different setting (Responsibility and Etiquette), the importance of maintaining and exemplifying positive behavior (Attitude) and focusing on tasks at hand (Dedication and Motivation). By creating a positive culture and climate, we hope to see an increase in academic performance and decrease in behavioral issues.
Studies have shown that schools with good culture and climate, positively impact school staff, parents, students and the community in many ways. We at W.A.Y believe that it takes a village to raise a child, however the village focus need to be on positively development, characteristic, growth as well as students achievement.
So please spread the word about our Positive Behavior Intervention Strategy and support our “DREAM” behavior acronym at home and around the community.
