The mission of Oliver Springs High School is to provide all students with a safe, structured, and supportive learning environment that utilizes differentiated instruction. Upon graduation, students will possess the academic skills and practical knowledge necessary to read with comprehension, compute accurately, solve problems, and write effectively as measured annually by the Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program.
It is the vision of Oliver Springs High School that through providing an environment conducive to learning and respect, and offering a comprehensive curriculum, we will produce graduates who are both successful and contributing citizens to an increasingly dynamic society.
This school year Oliver Springs High School will be implementing School-Wide Positive Behavior Support (SWPBS). SWPBS is a comprehensive positive approach that is nationally recognized, researched-based, and designed to enhance the capacity of schools in establishing school-wide rules and expectations in an effort to reduce the number of discipline problems and promote a safe and positive learning environment.
Oliver Springs High School has three school-wide rules
1. Be Ready
2. Be Responsible
3. Be Respectful
OSHS has dedicated significant attention to systematically teaching students the expected behaviors. All teachers will base their classroom expectations around these three rules. Students will participate in lessons at the beginning of the school year to learn what these rules mean in all areas of the school. Teachers will continue the discussion with what these rules look like in their classrooms and reteach the rules throughout the school year. The SWPBS committee believes that if students see what is expected of them, they will rise to these expectations.
With SWPBS, students will be able to earn Cat Cash for various positive behaviors. The cash will be given to students when they are seen following one of the school-wide rules, thus allowing teachers and staff to focus attention on appropriate behavior by students. Students who earn cash will have the privilege to attend reward parties planned throughout the year and use their cash for athletic tickets and various prizes.
