Dear CMP Community,

I am very excited to share the Buckeye Union School District Board (BUSD) unanimously approved the Charter Renewal for CMP-Shingle Springs at Wednesday night’s Board meeting.  The new authorization is effective July 1, 2019 and extends through June 30, 2024.  

The BUSD Board spoke glowingly of our program and operations, as well as the spirit of collaboration that is the foundation of the relationship between BUSD and CMP.

Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS)

We are proud to announce that CMP is collaborating as a network and is participating in PBIS training. The primary goals of PBIS are:

  • Development of a continuum of scientifically based behavior, social emotional and academic interventions and supports
  • Use of data to make decisions and solve problems
  • Making changes in the environment to prevent the development of problem behavior
  • Teaching and encouraging pro-social skills and behaviors
  • Implementation of evidence-based behavioral practices with fidelity and accountability
  • Universal screening and monitoring of student performance and progress

Our campus has formed a team including Administrators, Teachers, and Teaching Assistants who will attend trainings throughout the year.  The team will then share information learned with the staff during early release professional development days and staff meetings.  The team will continue to meet regularly to strategically implement PBIS strategies campus-wide creating consistent and clear expectations, positive reinforcement for desired behavior, and positive and constructive responses when problem behaviors arise.

Parents can support this endeavor by encouraging their children to always abide by the school rules of S.O.A.R:

Be Safe

Offer Peace

Always Respectful

Be Responsible
