Instructional Coaching

Blazer Pride

The PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports) core team, composed of about 25 staff, is proud to be considered a model school for the implementation of Blazer Pride (formerly known as “The ATHS Attitude”). Many high schools throughout Illinois have met with team members to discuss the steps Addison Trail High School has taken in recent years and how to sustain a positive school climate.

PBIS Internal Coach: Erica Craig

The following framework provides students with the expectations to help create a positive learning environment and to be successful:


Your goal is to master the following skills:

  • College Readiness Standards/State Standards/WIDA
  • I can statements


Your goal is to be respectful and to take pride and leadership in your work:

  • Attendance & timeliness is needed to master the needed skills necessary for class.
  • Make sure everyday you bring items that will allow you to be successful!


  • To practice academic honesty and to maintain a positive rapport in class is a mutual expectation.



  • The classroom needs to be a place where we will all feel safe to express our ideas.


  • "Responsible Use Cell Phone Policy" allows students to use personal electronics during passing periods and lunch in the hallways, Commons, and cafeteria.  Students may also be permitted to use electronic devices in class for academic purposes with teacher permission.

Emergency Drills

  • Lock Down: We are to stay in the classroom
  • Evacuation: Evacuate to the football field and check in with your current teacher
