School Climate Handbook
Portland Public Schools has been working hard to get all PPS schools to become Positive Behavior Intervention and Support schools. We are on our second year at Stephenson of this important work. The yearly plan is called the TFI (Tiered Fidelity Inventory). The Tiered Fidelity Inventory is a plan that is efficient, valid, and reliable way to guide our PBIS work throughout the school year. We are excited to continue our PBIS work because we know it’s rate of success supports student learning, school climate and sense of school pride. The PBIS Team expects to have a completed School Climate Handbook by June 10, 2016 which will be placed on Stephenson School’s website. In the meantime, we are posting the Student Rights and Responsibilities Handbook.
The current Student Rights and Responsibilities Handbook can be found at bottom of the following page: http://www.pps.k12.or.us/departments/student-services/364.htm.
The District is collaborating with the Portland Association of Teachers to update this document to align with recent changes in State Law (SB 553).
All schools are concurrently engaged in a process of creating school specific School Climate Handbooks in collaboration with staff, students, families, and community partners to meet the unique needs of each school community.
