Behavior Policy

Students are responsible for their own actions and behavior.

 

The basic concept of the Eisenhower discipline policy is that students are responsible for their own actions and behavior.

 

One of our primary objectives is to maintain good communication between home and school.  It is our belief that parents should be informed of and involved in the discipline process.  The teachers and administrators of Eisenhower strive to notify parents of behavior concerns related to their children.

 

Character Counts! is an integral part of the APS philosophy; it is not an order or a command. Politics and religion play no part in its meaning. Character Counts! is a way for families to start teaching their children about good character, a way to help kids learn to make the right choices, and a way for families to communicate better with each other. As an added bonus, teachers have reported dramatic improvements in student behavior (and better grades) when they teach students about good character.

 

The Six Pillars of Character Counts!: Respect, Citizenship, Caring, Trustworthiness, Fairness, and Responsibility. Teaching the meanings of each word to each member of your family is a good way to begin learning about good character in your home.
