Colham Ferry Elementary Mustangs succeed by being:
Motivated, Responsible, and Safe
PBIS: A Positive Approach
Students, faculty, and staff are recognized and rewarded for effort and performance in exceeding expectations.
Our Philosophy:
Our goal is to help each child develop self-discipline in order to make good choices.  Together the home, school, and community share the responsibility for developing good citizens.  Parents, teachers, and students must work together to maintain a safe learning environment. 
How does PBIS work?
  • Expectations for student behavior are defined by a building-based team with input from all staff
  • Appropriate student behavior is taught throughout the day.
  • Positive behaviors are publicly acknowledged.
  • Problem behaviors have clear consequences.  Discipline is implemented consistently by staff and administration.
  • Student behavior is monitored and staff receive regular feedback about student progress
  • An Action Plan is in place for a school wide, consistent approach in working with students, parents, and teachers to change unexpected behaviors and maximize instructional time.
