    Project B.E.A.R.S. is a program designed to help create a climate of cooperation, academic excellence, respect and safety at Riverview Elementary School. Project B.E.A.R.S. is based on seven guiding principles. We believe that these principles will help create an optimal learning environment for the students at Riverview. The guiding principles are as follows:

    • Clear expectations for student behavior.
    • Clear and consistent strategies for teaching appropriate behavior.
    • Clear and consistent strategies for encouraging appropriate behavior.
    • Clear and consistent consequences that discourage inappropriate behavior.
    • A support system and individual behavioral programs for students with unique and exceptional needs.
    • Clearly designed methods for evaluating and revising Project B.E.A.R.S.
    • The characteristics and philosophy of the behavior plan will be communicated to students and parents.
