Guiding Principles- Beliefs
  • All students are capable of learning.
  • Instruction should address content standards,
    common core state standards, student performance
    indicators, and the different learning styles of
    students, while making a connection to the real
    world and students interests.
  • Assessments should be varied to meet the
    students levels of understanding, be available
    in different forms, and be used to evaluate the
    readiness of students to move to new material.
  • The decision making process should include the
    viewpoints of faculty, staff, students, parents,
    and other community stakeholders.

Guiding Principles- School Character Points

  • Be Responsible
  • Be Right

Guiding Principles- Values
  • Academic Success
  • Accountability
  • Enrichment
  • Empowerment
  • Nurturing Environment
  • Parental Participation
  • Lifelong Learning
  • Diversity

  • A. Maceo Walker Middle Schools stakeholders
    visualize our school as a learning organization
    that supports and enhances the learning
    environment to meet the needs of all its
    students. A. Maceo Walkers curriculum challenges
    the minds of all its students to develop
    critical, logical, high-order thinking skills to
    become life-long learners in an international and
    technical society.

  • The mission of A. Maceo Walker Middle School is
    to equip all students with the necessary skills
    to master state mandated standards, to read with
    comprehension, to write with clarity, and to
    compute with accuracy while developing reasoning
    and problem-solving skills. Students will meet or
    exceed proficiency standards in their respective
    grade levels.

Philosophy Statement
  • Children have an intrinsic desire to do well and
    behave appropriately thus, it is our
    responsibility to provide the guidance and
    structure necessary for students to succeed in
    school. We believe every child has a right to
    learn in an environment free from fear,
    intimidation and disruptions thus its is our
    responsibility to foster an educational climate
    where positive school wide behavior is expected
    and modeled daily. Students, parents, and all
    staff members have a pro-active responsibility to
    ensure students adhere to school-wide rules and
    procedures which maintain a safe, effective
    academic arena.

    activities, real-world discussions, and anger
    management activities.

Secondary Intervention (Tier 2) Evaluation
  • Each 20 day period, the data for Tier 2 students
    is analyzed. The PBIS team plays close attention
    to the following
  • Number of office referrals
  • Observation data
  • Data from the PowerSchool SMS system will be used
    to determine success rate of interventions.
  • Conferences (Students, Teachers, Guidance
    Counselors, etc.)
  • Parent, Teacher, Student Surveys

Tertiary Interventions (Tier 3)
  • Our School Support Team (S-Team) and teachers
    identify and plan for these students by reviewing
    disciplinary referrals and parent conferences.
    S-Team meetings, meetings with the counselors,
    and meetings with the teachers are conducted
    early to identify special student needs. We
    monitor these interventions with data from
  • We have 0 Functional Behavior Assessments and
    comprehensive Behavior Intervention Plans
  • A. Maceo does not participate in the SHAPE
  • We had 2 Threat Assessments (From last year, 2013
    - 2014)
  • Currently, we have 17 expulsions
  • We monitor each 20-day period the success of
    interventions. We look for a decreased number of
    disciplinary referral forms and parent
    contacts/meetings for Tier 3 students. We also
    look for an increase in attendance and academic
    performance for these targeted students.
