|Our mission is to provide a family atmosphere which will allow members of our community to learn to their utmost potential, in a warm, supportive environment. We, the unified Heuvelton community, are dedicated to developing the skills, knowledge, and attitudes necessary for our students to be successful, contributing members of our society.|
Heuvelton Central School’s PBIS initiative focuses on school-wide strategies that will enable the staff to teach,
promote, recognize and celebrate positive behaviors, which will ensure that all of our students have an opportunity to learn in an environment in which they are respected, responsible and safe.

Values to be taught to the PreK-12th Grade Students:
These values are the overarching values for the entire school. As such, they will be posted throughout our building and emphasized throughout the school year.
In addition to these values, the following behaviors were taught previously and will continue to be taught during this school year. The faculty will all use the same consistent definition for these behaviors and have the same expectation that these behaviors will be followed according to the definitions.
Late to Class: A student enters class after the bell has rung.
Skip of Class: A student is not in class or the building without a pass.
If a student comes to class later than 5 minutes, this will be counted as a skip of class.
In addition to these two behaviors the 5th~12th grade teachers will teach the meaning of insubordination using the following definition:
Insubordinate : disobedient or argumentative regarding reasonable requests from an adult in authority (administrators, teachers, and all staff: teaching assistants, bus drivers, food service workers, custodians, office workers, etc.)
In addition to the behaviors listed above all students will be taught:
Appropriate use of Communication and Electronic Devices:
During instructional class periods students may not use personal electronic communication
devices unless the device is used to incorporate technology into a lesson or assignment supervised by a teacher/staff.
All electronic communication devices need to be turned off and visible to the classroom teacher during instructional periods.
Students will only be allowed to use electronic communication devices during breakfast, lunch, between class periods in the hallways, study halls (with permission from the study hall supervising teacher) and on the bus if the student is using the device respectfully, responsibly and safely. If the student is misusing the device it will be confiscated and submitted to the building administrators.
This School-wide PBIS system has been developed to ensure expected behaviors are taught, practiced and reinforced. Throughout this year please explain, model and recognize the behaviors that demonstrate students being respectful, responsible and safe.
