• Kennedy Elementary Discipline Plan
    Kennedy Elementary School has high standards for behavior and academic achievement. Teachers help students follow clear standards of behavior through a school wide positive discipline plan. This plan is designed to create a positive, safe and orderly learning environment by encouraging all students to behave in such a manner that they will be a credit to themselves, their parents, and Kennedy Elementary School. The staff has been trained in PBIS (Positive Behavioral Intervention & Supports) a system that promotes the use of positives in order to influence behavior.
