Soaring Eagle Matrix

Soaring Eagle Matrix - SchoolWide Common Expectations

 Our Soaring Eagle Matrix is a school-wide plan developed by the staff at Desert Thunder. This provides us with a common set of teacher and student campus wide procedures and expectations for conduct at our school. Having a common language will provide consistency for students and teachers among every grade level. Having a school wide system of expectations and procedures is research-based and has been proven to improve school climate, reduce problem behavior, and increase academic instructional time in school. We believe that when students are taught clearly defined behavioral expectations and provided with consistent, predictable and fair responses to their behavior, both positive and corrective, all students are more likely to meet those expectations. Students will feel welcomed, safe and respected; all students will have the opportunity to learn and grow. All teachers are expected to support and hold students accountable for adherence to the matrix with dignity and respect.
