Health and Character Education


At San Jose, teachers take an integrated approach to health education.  Children learn about good nutrition and hygiene, dental care, body systems, smoking, drug and alcohol prevention.  We use a variety of materials, including district adopted textbooks, and supplemental materials from a variety of sources.

Teachers look to the state standards to guide their instruction and the overall goal is to help students learn how to make healthy choices.

A Culture of Discipline

School-wide positive behavior intervention and support fosters a culture of discipline grounded in positive behavior intervention. Positive behavior support is a systems approach for establishing the social culture and individualized behavioral supports needed for schools to achieve both social and academic success for all. It is based on research that indicates the most effective discipline systems use proactive strategies designed to prevent discipline problems. Before consequences are given, students must first be supported in learning the skills necessary to enhance a positive school climate and avoid negative behavior.
