At MaST II

Background

Voyager Values is a school wide positive behavior approach for MaST II students and staff. Voyager Values will help to build a sense of school pride, and continuity among staff, students, and our community. We pride ourselves in fostering a safe, and nurturing environment for all students of diverse backgrounds. Voyager values will help to promote positive behaviors and amend negative behaviors to ensure that our students feel safe and secure, and are learning to be productive members of society. We will also be highlighting our “Anchors of the Month” for students exhibiting excellent performance in their classrooms, as well as “Teacher Spotlights” focusing in on our wonderful teachers and all that they do.

Objectives

  1. Students will learn how to work together as a class to achieve a common goal by understanding and demonstrating the seven anchors defined in Voyager Values.
  2. Teachers will utilize Voyager Values to promote a positive, and productive learning environment by encouraging students to follow school guidelines.

Monitoring and Evaluation

Voyager Values will be a collaborative effort of key stakeholders including staff members, ESP team members, and administration. Anchors will be given on a daily basis by key personnel in the building. Kate McCauley and Whitney El Laisy will be facilitating and overseeing the majority of the activities, and balances of anchors. We will also bringing 1-2 more people on board this year to help facilitate. The school bulletin board will house key items such as the anchor descriptions, menu of activities, and anchor of the month.
