Ashland's SOAR Characteristics

AES SOAR Characteristics

S - Supportive
O - Organized
A - Attentive
R - Respectful

These characteristics were created with staff input and used throughout the building to define quality characteristics for staff and students. An example of this is in the cafeteria where these SOAR words were further explained as to what they look and sound like in that setting. The cafeteria staff and 5th grade student leaders provided input to help create these expectations.

SOAR is used to help create a consistent and fair discipline approach through each classroom and setting in the school. Students, parents, and staff know these and use them when reminding students on proper behavior.
