Culture of Inclusion and Respect

Creating a culture of inclusion and respect helps keep most students on track to academic success. This stragey may include the following:

  • Strategic classrooms where inclusive instructional strategies are aligned with individual needs of ALL learners (English Language Learners, Special Ed, and advanced)

  • Adoption of the policy that failure is not an option[1], and that students are provided as much supports and interventions as they need to succeed

  • Multiple ways to engage students and opportunities for all students to succeed

  • Adults use de-escalation strategies and redirect students’ maladaptive behaviors, teaching and supporting noncognitive skills necessary for ongoing academic success
