Second Step

Citizenship and Conduct:  All students need to feel safe, respected, and welcomed on the Hillcrest campus. At Hillcrest, we honor each person’s individual uniqueness and appreciate each person’s contribution to the learning community.  So that all can learn and thrive academically, socially, and emotionally, each student is expected to be safe, be respectful, and be responsible for following all classroom and school rules, and procedures.


Students will bring home a classroom discipline agreement that discusses these rules and expectations—this is summarized in the GUSD School-Family Compact.  Each form must be signed by a parent and the student and returned to the teacher to signify that everyone has read and understands district/school/classroom expectations.  


Second Step Program:  Teachers (and many other staff members) have been trained in the Second-Step program to help work with students on safe and healthy social emotional learning (SEL).
