School Wide Behavior Plan Components
Clear behavioral expectations across all school settings
What is it that you want your students to know and be able to do? How do you teach them?
- List your Guidelines for Success
- Explain where and how common area expectations are posted and communicated
- Explain where and how classroom expectations/rules are posted and communicated
Measurable and observable goals
What problem(s) have you identified? What data are you using?
- Describe data used to establish goals
- Address student engagement – all students
- Develop a goal designed to reduce or eliminate disproportionalities and gaps between discipline of Black and Non-Black students
Strategies designed to reduce or eliminate the barriers to achieving your goals
What are the possible reasons (barriers) that your goal has not yet been achieved? What strategies/interventions will you use to reduce or eliminate the barrier?
- Identify the barriers you selected and validated
- List action steps – how, when, where, by whom strategies will be implemented
- Be sure action steps include specific strategies designed to reduce or eliminate disproportionalities and gaps between discipline of Black and Non-Black students
School-wide reward/recognition system aligned to targeted behavior
How do you reinforce positive behavior?
- Describe action steps: how, when, where, by whom strategies will be implemented
- Explain how you know the reward system is evidence-based and aligned to your goals
Data collection and management
What data do you need? How will it be collected and analyzed?
- Identify the type of student data you will access and use to monitor progress toward your goals
- Identify the person(s) responsible for collecting and reporting that data
- Explain the data you will use to determine how your reinforcement of positive behaviors is effective
- Document your schedule for analyzing and problem solving on behavior data
How do you know that your plan is being implemented as you designed it?
- Explain how you will know that your strategies are being implemented as intended (who will check, what will be used to check, where and when will the check occur)
- Explain how you will know that your strategies are effective
Is the plan working? Is the barrier reduced or eliminated? Are outcomes for all students equitable? What are your next steps?
- Describe how are data disaggregated and reflective of change over time
- Indicate your criteria for a positive response to implementation of your plan
- If the response to your intervention strategies are questionable or poor, explain how your plan will be modified
- If the response to your intervention strategies is good, explain how you will continue the strategies, fade support, or adjust your goals to ensure continued success.
Azalea Middle School
STUDENT CONDUCT AND SCHOOL DISCIPLINE
The mission of Azalea Middle School is to create a quality educational experience for all students to prepare them for college, career and life. Part of that preparation is to learn appropriate social and behavioral skills.
We ask all students to follow our Guidelines for Success: to be respectful, responsible and safe. All students are expected to behave in a manner that supports their own learning and the learning of their peers.
The AMS discipline plan is designed to reduce an over reliance on disciplinary referrals and out of school suspension methods to manage student behavior. A positive and proactive discipline plan starts with well-defined and communicated processes, routines and rules.
Azalea Middle School implements the Positive Behavior Support model as a foundation for classroom and school wide behavior systems. This includes a token economy system where students can earn “BKC bucks” (Black Knight Chivalry) for positive behaviors. Students use these bucks to purchase items at the BKC store and for entrance into school events. In addition to established rules and procedures, and positive incentives, AMS has developed a school-wide system to help students monitor their behavior and help teachers quantify and respond appropriately to student misbehavior.
