D.G. Cooley Constitution:
"I will always do my best to make sure that everyone is safe, happy, and able to learn."
The Cooley Constitution is recited each morning as part of the morning announcement routine. This statement was the start of implementing Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS) at D. G. Cooley Elementary School. The school continues to work diligently to further implement PBIS at Cooley.
