Revised 7/141 John P. Freeman School-Wide PBIS Plan Tulane Road Memphis, Tennessee 38109
Revised 7/142 Guiding Principles All students can be successful contributors to our society. Each student is a unique individual with special abilities and talents. Students learn in many different ways and are provided with a variety of instructional approaches to support their learning diversities. Goals and expectations are clearly defined and presented in order for students to experience success. Authentic learning and demonstration of achievement are integral components of curriculum design and instruction. Administrators, teachers, and support staff are committed to the responsibility for preparing and motivating each student to develop confidence, attain self-direction, and become life-long learners.
Revised 7/143 Vision John P. Freeman is a motivational learning center that continues to inspire all students to lead the quest for excellence. We have a safe and nurturing environment where students develop their unique abilities as they work to become productive, educated citizens who are able to compete globally. Our students are confident, self-directed, life-lone learners who make valuable contributions to their communities. Teachers rely on the important components of our curriculum and instruction design and research based strategies, which include but are not limited to: hands-on learning, the demonstration of achievement, collaborative learning, nonlinguistic representations, and technology integration. Teachers use a variety of instructional approaches to assess and support their students’ learning needs. Students’ learning is enhanced by providing opportunities to excel in and out of the classroom such after school tutorials, community service and extracurricular and enrichment activities. Additionally, teachers use date to implement best practices to develop the whole child. Our students demonstrate an understanding of school and district policies. All stakeholders are an integral part of our decision-making process.
Revised 7/144 Mission School The mission of John P. Freeman is to accelerate the performance of all students by building and strengthening family and community partnerships to support academic and character development and meet or exceed proficiency rates. We strive to create a positive, safe and respectful school community that inspires stakeholders to commit to and engage all students to daily lead the quest for excellence in order to compete. Student Each day, I will make it a priority to lead the quest for excellence in my home, school, and community.
Revised 7/145 Philosophy Statement Our school philosophy has a three-fold purpose. First, we wish to create a safe school environment where orderly instruction can take place. Next, by making clear what is desired behavior, we hope to encourage self- discipline among our students. Finally, through the application of certain rules, we hope to maintain a climate for developing good citizenship. Our intention is not to create punitive measures but to provide positive guidelines for desired behavior.
Revised 7/14 6 Goals or Objectives Goal: To reduce the number of students on probation for attendance (tardies to homeroom and classes) work habits or conduct. Objectives We will reduce the number of students who are tardy fifteen or more times in a year by 10%. We will reduce the number of students who are referred to the office for misconduct by 10%.

Social Skills – Students will receive social skills/character education training by ISS teacher, educators, professional counselor and/or other mental health professionals. All ISS teachers will receive training in the SCS Character Education Model. Service Learning – Students will participate as resources are available in their school community.
