There is a very low teacher turn over rate at Carrillo. Teachers are treated as professionals and their voice is heard through Leadership meetings and Professional Learning Communities where shared-decision making is practiced. Teachers keep up to date with current, research-based practices through many professional development opportunities.
Carrillo has created its own Character Development program which is part of our Positive Behavior Incentive System (PBIS). We have 10 character traits that we focus on: Life Skills- Honest, Kind, Respectful, Positive, and Peaceful; Scholar Skills- Collaborator, Communicator, Motivated, Responsible, and Risk Taker. Students are recognized for showing these traits in many forms, including Student of the Month Celebrations and receiving Cougar "Paw"riffic tickets.
