Last year, Kenny developed a Positive Engagement plan. The plan is utilized school wide and revised at the beginning of each year.
Each Kenny teacher has created their own positive engagement plan to address behavior and build community in the classroom.
Positive Engagement Plan
Our goals when addressing behavior center around instruction, eliminating distrations and keeping students involved in learning.
