Brick House-Every Student Completes Every Assignment

Do you believe that your primary job is to make sure students learn the standards? Do you believe that every student should complete every assignment? Do you believe that the assignment is practice for learning? Do you believe in students and not give up on them? Do you believe we should have an Espirit De Corps and support each other?

When students are not put on the ICU list, then we have given up on them and the student has lost the additional support from other staff members to get the assignment in to measure mastery.
