Raider Culture:  The Raider Way is our positive and caring culture that guides our actions.

Positive Relationships (1).png

At Sidney Public Schools, we recognize the power of a positive relationship.  Positivity is a desired trait and highly contagious.  It helps strengthen relationships with everyone we encounter.  Strong relationships are built on trust, respect, and getting to know one another. 

 

Positive attitudes increase opportunities for encouragement, companionship, open communication, and mindfulness.  Mindfulness is the ability to take responsibility for our words and actions. 

 

Those that are mindful are careful and attend to what they say, not letting their own negative emotions impact those around them.

One size does not fit all!  At Sidney Public Schools, we use a Layered Continuum of Opportunities and Support for our students to grow academically, physically, socially, and behaviorally. 

 

Our Multi-Tiered Systems of Support facilitates a culture where we meet our learners where they are and help them set personal goals to grow and achieve.  Learning opportunities and programs at Sidney Public Schools are designed to support each student in reaching personalized goals.

Sidney Public Schools utilizes Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports to guide the development of our positive school culture.  It assists us in making data based decisions that increase the likelihood of increased student achievement and growth, reduced disciplinary situations, and improved teacher outcomes.

 

At SPS we want to focus on a positive culture that encompasses what is best for kids and best for our employees.  Positive school buildings and classroom that encourage creativity and teamwork will serve students everyday.

 

Continuous learning is at the heart of Sidney Public Schools for students and staff where we support collaborative professional learning and value based leadership. Building capacity in staff through shared learning, leadership, and teamwork keeps our focus on skills and a confident mindset to teach all kids.
