Chino Valley Unified school district is committed to making their classrooms a safe and positive environment for ALL their students. The district’s vision goes beyond academics and looks at servicing the WHOLE student. From this commitment, the district has begun to implement a new positive behavior system, where both preventive interventions and classroom management strategies are put in place to raise the quality of learning taking shape! Wickman is excited to be a part of this program and has begun to make great strides in implementing it. 


    The PBIS model or Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports is a nationally recognized framework encompassing multiple strategies and interventions to support student growth. At the heart of this model, are school wide expectations both student and teachers will use to address concerns unique to their school site.   A team was put together to author a set of expectations with one goal in mind:  


    Wickman is a positive place to learn and grow! 


    Our school wide expectations have become the centerpiece to the type of behaviors we would like all our wildcats to use both in and out of the classroom. In order to assist our students in understanding these expectations, every classroom has them posted to reference.   P.A.W.S stand for: Positive Expectations, Always be responsible, Work and play safely, Show respect. All of our expectations have been created with various areas found on our campus.  


    To help support the implementation of our behavior expectations, Mr. Rummel and Mr. Carenzo will be holding two behavior assemblies throughout the school year, one during the first week of school and the other after winter break (January). These assemblies are designed to help our students understand the expectations and to answer any questions they might have.
