Administrative Dean – Mr. Andrews
Greetings from the Dean’s office. My name is Irv Andrews.
As the Administrative Dean at CMSW, my primary focus is on improving our school climate through the use of PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports). Our system of PBIS at Chaska Middle School West is called PRIDE (Prepared, Respectful, Integrity, Dependability, and Excellence). At CMSW, we provide our students with the tools and resources to be Prepared and Respectful while demonstrating Integrity, Dependability, and Excellence. We emphasize PRIDEFUL behavior in all areas of the school environment. We teach and/or reteach expected behaviors in various locations of our environment at the beginning of the school year.
At CMSW, our overall goal is for students to increase positive behaviors in school and for those learned behaviors to transfer into all aspects of everyday life.
