Social Emotional Curriculum
The social and emotional needs of Assumption School are met with two program we have in place. Virtue-Based Restorative Discipline offers teachers, parents, students, and schools a way to cultivate virtue while repairing harm from bullying and other hurtful behaviors while Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (PBIS) supports the school to build systems that implement a multi-tiered approach to social, emotional, and behavior support.
Goals of restorative discipline:
*Understand the harm and develop empathy for both parties
*To listen and respond to the needs of both parties
*To encourage accountability and responsibility through personal reflection within a collaborative planning process
*Jesus rejects an 'eye for an eye'
*What can we consider low, mid, high level incidents and low, mid, high level response
The broad purpose of PBIS is to improve the effectiveness, efficiency and equity of schools. PBIS improves social, emotional, and academic outcomes for all students.
