Care Team is a team of staff members who come together on a weekly basis to discuss how the school is providing additional services to our students with academic and/or behavioral challenges. The goal of the Care Team is to coordinate school-wide efforts focused on making sure students attend school every day, are in good health, are performing well academically, and are developing the social emotional skills necessary to be successful in school and life. The Care Team accepts referrals from teachers, staff, and families to discuss and provide additional supports for students that are struggling to achieve in school.
CCS's philosophy of staff/student relationships, classroom management, and discipline is aligned with the Restorative Practices approach. Restorative Practices provides a framework and specific strategies for educators to use in developing a positive school climate that will, in turn, foster student discipleship. Our approach to discipline involves interventions when harm has happened, as well as practices that help to prevent harm and conflict by creating a sense of belonging, safety, and social responsibility within the school community. Through this process, we strive to make things as right as possible and bring redemption.
Social Emotional Learning- Second Step
Second Step programs are research-based, teacher-informed, and classroom-tested to promote the social-emotional development, safety, and well-being of children from Early Learning through Grade 8. SEL concepts provide an extra dimension to education, focusing on improving cooperation, communication, and decision making. In a world where emotional intelligence is critical for lifelong happiness, successful careers, and healthier relationships, SEL gives students a framework for developing these skills.
