Twelve Eastside students cashed in on their good behavior to earn an end-of-the-year kayaking reward trip. “I think what we’re really doing is trying to change the culture of our buildings to try to move away from punitive things,” explained Director of Schools Bobby Cox. “We’ll always have students who misbehave and we have discipline procedures, but we’re trying now to do more reinforcement of positive behavior to change the negative behavior, so that’s been really good.”
