Safe Spaces to Learn and Grow

  • PBIS in Action

    Wellington Exempted Village Schools believe in providing school-wide systems of support that include strategies for defining, teaching, and supporting appropriate student behaviors to create positive school environments.

    A continuum of positive behavior supports for all students is implemented in areas including the classroom and non-classroom settings (such as hallways, buses, and restrooms). Abundant student-led activities helps these positive cultures to flourish, including:

    • High school clubs such as National Honor Society, Friends of Rachel’s and Rachel's Challenge, Student Council, Future Farmers of America, Anime Club, Civil War History Club, SADD, and Drama Club
    •  Positive Behavior Intervention Supports implementation in all schools
    •  Dynamic Duke award for students K-8
    •  Student of the Month character recognition K-12
    •  OLWEUS Bullying Prevention Program in all schools
    •  McCormick Middle School honors local veterans each year
    •  D.A.R.E. Officer (Drug Abuse Resistance Education program) presence in all schools to support students and reinforce making good decisions
