Behavior Support and Student Engagement

Tara Drysdale
Assistant Superintendent, High School Curriculum and Instruction

Our VISION is to promote the educational experience and well-being of every student.

Our MISSION is to do whatever it takes to arm every student with the academic, social, and emotional skills to be successful in career and life.

Our VALUES:              

  • WE BELIEVE each and every student matters.

  • WE BELIEVE and demand the elimination of all gaps for every student.

  • WE BELIEVE in creating and maximizing future opportunities for all students.

THEREFORE, we will hold high expectations for all students and staff; distribute resources as necessary to provide extra supports and interventions so all students can achieve; identify and eliminate any social and educational barriers to students’ success.

The Department of Behavior Support and Student Engagement includes the areas of school health (physical and mental), home and hospital instruction, student information system (Infinite Campus), Positive Behavior Instruction, homeless assistance, home schooling, student attendance and enrollment, student and school safety, Activities and Athletics and other areas parents and teachers need advice on how to deal with problems as children mature. 

Because the growing-up process is a complicated one, parents and teachers often need advice on how to deal with problems as their children mature. The schools maintain a staff of student support personnel for this purpose, each of whom may be contacted through the school principal.
