Strategies, practices, and approaches implemented in the district for the following areas along with grade levels implemented:

Resilience-building strategies
Universal Design for Learning(UDL) K-12, - The program is designed for students K-12. Currently we are implementing the program in the 9th grade. Teachers provide a climate of engagement, acceptance, and multiple representations in order to eliminate barriers and promote student success. Collaborative for Academic, Social and Emotional Learning, (CASEL)- This program (which is a free initiative) is a collaborative for Academic, Social and Emotional learning, grades 7-12 Our 9th grade curriculum includes the HOPE (Health Occupations and Physical Education) course which promotes health, physical, and social education.

Positive school climate efforts
- Child Safety Matters curriculum is presented in grades 4- 6. This program is successful in educating elementary students with strategies to prevent bullying, cyberbullying, digital abuse and child abuse. One elementary school uses the SOAR program. SOAR stands for Safe, Organized, Accountable, Respectful. All students K-6 participate in the SOAR program.. Teen Safety Matters used in grades 7-12 is a program to prevent child abuse and bullying among teen-agers.

Trauma informed practices
We have implemented a Mental Health Plan in the district and created a Suicide Risk and Intervention Plan for at-risk students In addition, a school-wide protocol for trauma and crisis events has been established. Staff are trained on classroom emergency procedures should a crisis situation occurs. We are training all staff members using the Youth Mental Health First Aid program. The district also participates in CPI (Crisis Prevention/Intervention) training for all staff. CPI is a nonviolent crisis intervention program).

Student-led initiatives
Students in our high schools provide a student mentoring program for struggling learners grades 7-12.. This has been a successful pilot program in our district and provides one-on-one support in the classroom. Christian Fellowship Association- Grades 7-12--Students meet on a weekly basis to provide faith-based support to any student who wants to participate

Character education
Safer, Smarter Kids curriculum in grades K-3 classrooms. In the elementary school there is a daily character message from the principal broadcast on the Morning Show. The school motto is Work Hard, Be Kind, and Soar.. Sixth graders can be members of the BETA Club whose mission statement is: To promote the ideals of academic achievement, character, service and leadership in elementary and secondary school students. Our high schools have the National Honor Society that encourages leadership, achievement, courage, and honesty for grades 10-12

Restorative practices Tier 1 approaches
To provide our schools with an overall restorative approach, we implement a school-wide discipline program . Schools offers alternatives practices that will not negatively affect student learning and achievement. With restorative practices, we aim to provide a framework for team building and restoring relationships after conflict has occurred. Our school has introduced a program to decrease student absenteeism. Students who maintain As and Bs with at least 90% attendance, along with students with Cs and no absence are exempt from semester exams.
