The Positive Office Referral should be used when a teacher wishes to reward a student for something academic or behavioral. This differs from the ROAR award in that Positive Office referrals can be issued at any time and for any positive behavior worthy of reward. The ROAR award is for students working hard over a period of time and producing academic results. To submit a Positive Office Referral, CLICK HERE. Students that receive a POR will be called in by an administrator and will also be awarded 25 Tiger Pride points!

Professional Growth Opportunity through Peer Observation!

As discussed at the faculty meeting, we are rolling out opportunities to observe other teachers to see the many amazing things we have going on at Travis High School!! Use the links below to request to observe another teacher and/or let us know you are willing and able to be observed!
