The Fairview Advantage Podcast was recognized in 2018 with a “Mark of Excellence” Award from the Ohio School Public Relations Association.
Fairview Park City Schools Superintendent Dr. Bill Wagner and Director of Teaching and Learning Melanie Wightman discuss the elements of The Fairview Advantage, the district’s framework for student success.
Hosted by FPCS Communications and Marketing Coordinator Amanda Lloyd, this episode’s discussion includes:
Fairview High School Principal Chris Vicha outlines the Top 5 new things students, families, and the community can expect at FHS for the 2017-18 school year, including block scheduling, new AP courses, the Junior Experience, and Senior Exit Interviews. High school biology teacher Mr. Bruening joins the conversation to talk about the start-up of a district Robotics team.
Gilles-Sweet Elementary School has incorporated the PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Support) model with the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program to create a collaborative and engaging program called “Warrior P.R.I.D.E.”
Principal Barb Brady, Associate Principal Matthew Krivak, and School Counselor Meredith Schulte are the guests on this episode of “The Fairview Advantage” podcast and share the details of the Warrior P.R.I.D.E. program.
While the elementary school, which celebrates its 10-year anniversary this year, had a PBIS program in place since the building’s opening, Principal Brady said, “We decided it was time to refresh our model and fine-tune what we had been doing.”
The program directly aligns with the district’s vision to be “a community united.”
Gilles-Sweet teachers and administrators have coined the hashtag #GillesGreat to highlight exceptional examples of Warrior Pride.
