School-wide Expectations

Student working on Chromebook

Positive Behavior Support

DeGrazia implements a Positive Behavior Support System in which consistency of behavior will be expected throughout all parts of the school community.

Our school-wide DeGrazia ART Code is:
Act safely, respect everyone and everything, and take responsibility.

The DeGrazia PBIS program has validated the benefits of directly teaching students our expectations, and acknowledging appropriate behaviors. This has paid off with a significantly reduced number of discipline incidents on our campus. Go Dustdevils!
