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?
Measurable and observable goals
What problem(s) have you identified? What data are you using?
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?
School-wide reward/recognition system aligned to targeted behavior
How do you reinforce positive behavior?
Data collection and management
What data do you need? How will it be collected and analyzed?
How do you know that your plan is being implemented as you designed it?
Is the plan working? Is the barrier reduced or eliminated? Are outcomes for all students equitable? What are your next steps?
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.
