At Shafter High School, we are proud to be Generals and believe in #GeneralPRIDE. It is not a program, rather it is an approach for creating a culture on our campus and having an individualized support system for our students. In order for ALL of our SHS students to achieve, we believe that we must help build a student both socially and academically.
In order to have #GeneralPRIDE, SHS has expectations for our entire campus to guide student and staff behavior.
P- Pride in Community and Traditions
R- Respect: Honor Yourself and Others
I- Integrity: Doing What is Right
D- Determination: Be All In
E- Enthusiasm: Pursue Your Passion
A crucial aspect to grow our culture is establishing expectations. These expectations were created with the input of our staff members with the intention of fostering positive behavior at all times. In every classroom at SHS, those expectations are posted for students to follow and provide guidance on how students should behave in the classroom, around campus, and in the community.
Collect and save General Bucks and spend them at the PRIDE Store on Thursdays during lunch!
Another essential aspect of the #GeneralPRIDE system is the classroom lessons that center on student and staff expectations. On scheduled Thursdays throughout the year all SHS students receive a short lesson about what it means to demonstrate PRIDE on a daily basis. The lessons are designed to be short, meaningful, and continue to encourage students to show #GeneralPRIDE. Please refer to the #GeneralPRIDE Lesson’s page to view scheduled dates.
Because of the effort by SHS students, staff, parents, and community members, the California PBIS Coalition recognized SHS’s #GeneralPRIDE system for successful PBIS implementation at the Platinum level for 2018-2019 school year. SHS is a recipient within the California PBIS Coalition’s System of Recognition, reflecting excellence in the measurement of fidelity as well as our efforts in implementing the core features of Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports. Shafter High earned scores of 93% (Tier 1) 100% (Tier II) and 85%(Tier III) for the 2018-2019 school year. As always, we are looking to improve those numbers and most importantly, offer more services to help our students demonstrate that.
