Energy Bus School
RCE is in the third year as an Energy Bus School (EB) for Leadership developed by Jon Gordon. The EB approach is to create and sustain a positive school culture through shared leadership. We define Leader ship as the ability to take personal responsibility for your actions and stop to think about outcomes prior to reacting to challenging situations. We incorporate seven common principles – all the skills needed to be successful in today’s world.
Principle 1: You’re the Driver – reinforce taking personal responsibility for your actions, not blaming or complaining.
Principle 2: Create a Positive Vision – teaches students to set positive personal and academic goals as they become active participants in the learning process.
Principle 3: Drive with Purpose – students discover their unique talents and how they can utilize these gifts to determine their purpose.
Principle 4: Fuel Your Ride with Positive Energy – reveals ways to become a more positive person while learning how your behavior can impact everyone in the learning environment.
Principle 5: Transform Negativity – turn challenges into opportunities for learning and growth.
Principle 6: LOVE Your Passengers – seeing the true gift in every person we meet as we find ways to serve our school and our community.
Principle 7: Enjoy the Ride! – reinforces the importance of living a happy and healthy life.
