Every VLE student is a STAR, a student taking awesome responsibility for their school work, their behavior, the way they treat others and their attitude!
Our positive behavior plan is mandated by the state of Louisiana. All of the expectations that have been set for our students are based on these four behaviors:
Be ready to learn
Student behavior is managed using a behavior color code system.
VLES 2019-2020 Daily Behavior Color Code
Purple Exceptional Behavior
Green Ready to learn
Yellow Verbal warning
Orange Loss of recess
Red Parent contact required
Any other infraction after parent contact has been made will result in an office referral. There is an official referral form that will need to be completed.
Each day the color resets to Green.
Rewarding Good Behavior
Each teacher has a behavior plan that is implemented in their classroom with rewards and consequences.
On a school wide level, special activities are planned at the end of each nine weeks. Students who stay on purple or green for the nine weeks will receive an admission ticket to the special activity. Those admission tickets include the student's name and will go into a drawing for special prizes.
Student of the Month
During the months of September, October, November, January, February, March and April, a Student of the Month will be chosen from each class. The Student of the Month will have their photo placed on the Student of the Month display board in the main hallway. In addition, the student of the month will receive a special bragtag to wear on their backpack, a certificate, recognition at the monthly PTP meeting, and their name in a drawing for a big prize at the end of the school year.
All students must be seated or stand in a line when waiting on buses or cars ensuring the safety of all children. Noise should be kept to a minimum. No items such as food, books, and pencils should be removed from the backpack while waiting on cars or buses. Students should be ready to move quickly when called for rides.
