Behavior and Expectations

Marquardt School District 15

Marquardt School District 15 wants to provide a safe and positive learning environment for students, teachers, and staff. Below are three ways the District supports this goal: 

  • The Parent/Student Handbook provides valuable information regarding school rules and Board of Education policies. This information will assist both parents and students in helping to create a productive and safe learning environment at our schools.
  • The Positive Behavior Intervention & Supports System (PBIS) is a data-driven, proactive systems approach for establishing the behavioral supports and social environment, and is needed for all students in a school to achieve social, emotional, and academic success.
  • Character Counts! is the nation's most effective character education and student development program.
