"Leading the Way inReclaiming Youth for Society."NAVIGATORS are...SAFE, RESPECTFUL, and RESPONSIBLE
PROGRAM DESCRIPTIONSTHE ACADEMIC PROGRAM
Richard Yoakley is dedicated to providing rigorous instruction and utilizing trauma-informed instructional practices. Academic instruction follows KCS policies and course pacing guides. Students have the advantage of smaller class sizes with two adults in each classroom to provide additional academic support. Educators at RYS encourage students to be lifelong learners. This can only be achieved through student ownership and pride in academic success. Therefore, students and guardians are encouraged to track academic progress through KCS Aspen and Canvas pages.POSITIVE BEHAVIOR INTERVENTION SUPPORT (PBIS)
Richard Yoakley School implements Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS). The main focus of PBIS is to provide a clear system for all expected behaviors at Richard Yoakley School. While many faculty and students have assumptions about what is expected behavior, we cannot assume that everyone’s beliefs are similar. Through PBIS, we will work to create and maintain a safe, respectful, and responsible environment in which ALL school community members have clear expectations and understandings of their role in the educational process.
