Student and Family Guide to Success
Our student and family guide to success provides guidance for how school teams may respond to student behavioral issues. Our goal is to support our students in learning how to navigate challenging situations and make smart and productive decisions about how they respond so that they are prepared to be successful in college, careers, and life.
At TPS we believe in the power of restorative practices and interventions. On our journey to Destination Excellence, students, teachers and leaders will foster safe, supportive and joyful learning environments that emphasize acceptance and inclusion for all students. There are profound benefits for a school community when we seek alternative options to suspensions. TPS school leaders are working on ways to devise an approach that ensures accountability, reflection and reconciliation while attempting to keep students in our educational environment.
The Student Success Plan is a way to help students make to plan to meet their goals to succeed at school and in life. Teachers, counselors, and family work with the student to set academic and behavioral goals and ways in which to achieve them.

Principals on student success...
“Our goal is to help students’ de-escalate and meet their needs.”
Principal, Tasha Johnson
“We implemented the buddy-teacher model to support students. Our staff bought into the fact that students’ didn’t want to mess up or be disruptive, they need to be coached on coping skills.”
Principal, Tracy Thompson
“We try to curb discipline incidents by implementing common class procedures and consequences. The best defense, in this case, is a planned, strategic offense. We also track student behavior issues and have a tiered discipline structure that includes lunch detention, conferences, and TRAICE. Also, we implemented a “Suspension Reentry Conference” with the student, parents, and support staff from the school where students complete a success plan upon suspension.”
Principal, Dr. Jody Parsons
