Both the principal (Jennifer Cowan) and the teachers impress upon the children the importance of community and responsibility. They provide clear direction to parents and students about expectations through the school handbook, and rules are reinforced with students on a daily basis. Social skills training is provided to students who can benefit from it (e.g. those with Aspergers). When students break rules, they are aware there will be consequences. The consequences depend on severity (e.g., time outs, suspensions). All students at Astolot are expected to conduct themselves in a manner which is respectful to self and others at all times.
