School-wide Expections

Students walking single file in front of classrooms

Positive Behavior Support

Coyote Trail implements a Positive Behavior Support System in which consistency of behavior will be expected throughout all parts of the school community.

Our school-wide expectations are:
We are safe, respectful, responsible, and we have fun!

The Coyote Trail PBIS program has validated the benefits of directly teaching students our expectations, and acknowledging appropriate behaviors. This has paid off with a significantly reduced number of discipline incidents on our campus. Go Trailblazers!
