BRAVES Program

Building Responsibility, Achievement, and Vision for Elsberry Students

(A Safe Schools Program)

BRAVES is a program designed for students who need extra support achieving in school for either academic or behavioral reasons. Students in need of this are offered the opportunity to be referred to the BRAVES where staff will provide the necessary support to help them progress in their classes. Students can be placed in the BRAVES resource room for part of a day, or all day, depending on their needs. BRAVES staff will also help monitor student progress and help students transition from the BRAVES program back to the regular classroom. Students are expected to actively and positively participate by completing academic work, attending school regularly, and following all rules. Parents are also asked to actively participate in designing a plan to help their child be more successful at school.

Goals of the BRAVES program:

  1. Provide an environment which helps increase the student's success at school. This could be in the Resource Room or a push-in program.
  2. Use the current curriculum to continue the student's education. Teachers provide classroom lessons and assignments to be completed in the BRAVES Resource Room.
  3. To provide training as needed to help ease the transition back to the regular classroom, including social skills training, mentoring, conflict resolution, study skills, and/or grade monitoring.
  4. Refer students to appropriate community services and resources.
