POSITIVE BEHAVIOR EXPECTATIONS
Rules for behavior are important, but at Maywood, expectations for positive behavior are more important. Our positive behavior expectation program focuses on teaching and rewarding students for meeting and exceeding expectations. Our "Expectations Matrix" focuses on four main areas: Responsibility, Integrity, Safety, and Courtesy. The program involves all staff, students, student families, and the community in recognizing and honoring students for positive choices. As a rule, discipline is the final resort when dealing with misbehavior. The staff of Maywood makes every effort to ensure that each student hear and understand the site and District's expectations and the legal requirements placed upon them by the state. It is also important to remember that in some circumstances the site administration must use professional discretion in assigning discipline, rather than rigid matrices or guidelines.
