Our Learning

The Dixon Staff is excited to work with our District's ACT team to develop common language and expectations for social responsibility at Dixon school.

Both staff and students will review our Social Responsibility matrix from many years prior (P.A.W.S).

We will rebuild a new matrix that highlights more "responsibilities" instead of rules.  Having students develop a better understanding of why we expect certain behaviours will provide them with additional "internal guidance" that can help them make better choices when they are not in the presence of an adult.

For Staff, having common language and understandings of expectations will develop a stronger sense of "shared responsibility" for all children in the school, regardless if an adult is the classroom teacher for that child or not.
