  • At Coffeen Elementary School it is our primary goal to have the highest expectations for ALL students, providing multiple supports to ensure their achievement success.

         Our Response to Intervention framework ensures students of all ability levels receive high quality support matched to individual needs and goals.  Individual progress is monitored frequently to insure that instruction is having the desired effect.  If students are not making progress with one instructional approach, the intervention is changed and more targeted and intensive support is provided.

                It is or goal through promoting a No Excuses Philosophy, that students will understand that education doesn't end after high school.  That every student, without exception and without excuse, will have the proficiency in reading, language arts, and math to succeed in the higher education that prepares them for the career of their choice, regardless of life’s obstacles.

    Our Research Based Behavior Intervention Model is agreed on school wide by Coffeen Elementary School.  We use  Positive Behavior Supports (PBS) as a tool for teaching expected behaviors.  This is a proactive program teaching expectations before misbehavior occurs.  The students recognize these expectations as “Respectful, Responsible and Safe”.
