Project Positive

  • Project Positive is our overarching Districtwide multi-tiered framework for creating and cultivating a positive learning environment for all of our students and staff here at Cheektowaga Central. Incorporating evidence-based practices into our daily operations to promote positive behaviors and opportunities for learning for all of our students. 

    Cheektowaga Central School District Learning and Behavior Expectations

    A concerted effort was made to establish a consistent social culture and a common language across all of our buildings district-wide, through the application of 5 common learning and behavior expectations. Our building administrators collaborated and agreed on five behaviors that they felt were crucial for a student to demonstrate in order to be successful both in school and out in the community, regardless of their age. In each building, these expectations are referred to as the "The 5 B's".
    "The 5 B's" are: 
    • Be Ready and On Time
    • Be Respectful
    • Be Responsible
    • Be Safe
    • Be Kind

    Daily the expectations are taught and reinforced with our students, and students are acknowledged when they demonstrate these desired behaviors.
