One of the most critical elements of successful behavioral management is structure. At Childhelp Non-Public Schools, all students spend their day assigned to a single classroom unless designated otherwise in their Individual Education Plan (IEP). Within the classrooms, specific times are listed for each subject and activity to help the students remain on task and prepared for what’s coming next.
School is scheduled from 8:00 AM until 3:00 PM, Monday through Friday, throughout the school year. Whenever possible, minimum/in-service days are scheduled to coincide with existing holidays to maximize the amount of time children spend in the classroom. The school calendar is created at the beginning of the year and coincides as much as possible with the Culpeper County School District elementary school calendar. The new school calendar, as well as a bell schedule that defines the minimum days, will be released before the beginning of each school year.
