The Moses Lake School District was formed in 1980 and has been governed by the Douglas County Board of Education. The district is home to three schools, the Moses Lake Academy and the Moses Lake Elementary School, the Moses Lake Middle School, and the Moses Lake High School.
The Moses Lake Charter School is the only public high school in the district. The Moses Lake Academy is a private school that is not open to the public. The Moses Lake Elementary School was built in 1980 and the Moses Lake Middle School was built in 1995.
In the past several years, the school district has focused on two primary focuses: improving academic performance and reducing behavioral problems. To this end, the school board has enacted numerous measures that address both aspects of these issues. At the same time, other changes have been made to increase student achievement and reduce behavioral problems. One of the most effective of these strategies is a comprehensive behavioral program known as the “Better Behavior Strategy.”
This strategy was designed to increase academic performance and reduce behavior problems while improving the classroom climate. It incorporates several educational reforms that are geared toward increasing student academic achievement and reducing behavior problems. This strategy addresses three major components:
– Strengthening the academic skills of students at each grade level and improving their understanding of core subjects and subject matter through consistent and rigorous teaching techniques, including classroom observation, practice, and feedback.
– Developing Learning Styles that will help students learn more effectively and efficiently. These Learning Styles will include a variety of assessments such as standardized tests, homework assignments, and assessments of student academic and social skills.
– Strengthening the district’s disciplinary system by using innovative and effective behavior management systems that provide positive consequences for inappropriate and disruptive behavior. This includes effective use of consequences such as suspensions, expulsions, and expulsion.
The district’s focus on these three strategies is designed to support students in developing strong academic skills while minimizing behavior problems. In addition to this, the district provides programs and activities that provide an environment that promotes good communication and effective conflict resolution between students and staff and helps them understand the consequences of their actions. In short, the district seeks to develop positive relationships with students and families to foster a healthy learning environment and positive relations between staff and students.
The Moses Lake School District is one of the largest school districts in the state of Idaho. Located in Idaho’s third largest city, Idaho Falls, it serves approximately fifty percent of the student population in the area. With a population exceeding sixty thousand students, it is also one of the wealthiest cities in Idaho.
In the late 1970s, the Moses Lake School District began to implement an innovative plan known as the Better Behavior Strategy. The Better Behavior Strategy was designed to improve the educational practices of students, parents, and teachers. This effort has helped to bring about significant gains in academic achievement and reduce behavior problems among students and parents.
The behavioral component of the Better Behavior Program uses an innovative assessment and intervention system called the Intervention Skills Model. which is based on the theory of conflict theory. The Intervention Skills Model involves two types of skill–behavioral modeling (direct and indirect) and modeling. The Intervention Skills Model consists of several components that include the introduction to a model conflict situation and modeling that engage the teacher’s modeling techniques and make it part of the classroom.
The intervention skills model allows teachers to determine which behaviors need to be modified and then to use modeling techniques to help students change those behaviors. In this way, the Intervention Skills Model can teach students the skills necessary to deal with conflict successfully without creating a negative response from the child and their peers.
Additionally, the Intervention Skills Model supports teachers to build effective relationships with parents and other adults in the community to build better communication and improve communication among them. The Intervention Skills Model also allows teachers to create a supportive and nurturing learning environment, which builds healthy parent-child relationships.
