DREAM School Expectations

The Chet F. Harritt School community shows acceptance and respect toward others and ourselves. TK-8 students and teachers participate in our DREAM expectations. Each morning students recite the DREAM pledge and teachers conduct lessons regularly, which address the following characteristics:

  • Diligence by working hard and not giving up.
  • Respect by treating others the way I want to be treated.
  • Empathy by thinking of others.
  • Accountability by taking responsibility for my own actions.
  • Motivation by always doing my best.


Positive Behavior Intervention Supports (PBIS)

The primary goal of Chet F. Harritt School is to provide the best educational experience possible to each student enrolled in our school. We are committed to providing a schoolwide learning environment focused on supporting and encouraging each student's academic, personal, and social growth. We hold high expectations for student achievement and behavior. We believe that all students can behave in school. We feel that all students have a responsibility to behave in a manner that allows teachers to teach and students to learn and does not violate the best interests of any individual in the school community.

Chet F. Harritt has implemented the Positive Behavior Intervention Supports (PBIS) to benefit our student population. The purpose of implementing PBIS at Chet F. Harritt is to:

  1. Create a more positive culture in the entire learning community
  2. Continue to improve life in school for all students
  3. Challenge students and adults to maintain consistent expectations
  4. Inspire positive behavior within the learning environment
  5. Empower the decision-making process by utilizing behavior data
  6. Celebrate the successes of our student and staff
