A. Maceo Walker Middle School School-wide PBIS Plan Discipline Plan 1900 East Raines Road Memphis, Tennessee 38116

2 Guiding Principles- Beliefs
All students are capable of learning. Instruction should address content standards, common core state standards, student performance indicators, and the different learning styles of students, while making a connection to the real world and students’ interests. Assessments should be varied to meet the students’ levels of understanding, be available in different forms, and be used to evaluate the readiness of students to move to new material. The decision making process should include the viewpoints of faculty, staff, students, parents, and other community stakeholders.

3 Guiding Principles- School Character Points
Be Respectful Be Responsible Be Right

4 Guiding Principles- Values
Academic Success Accountability Enrichment Empowerment Nurturing Environment Parental Participation Lifelong Learning Diversity

5 Vision A. Maceo Walker Middle School’s stakeholders visualize our school as a learning organization that supports and enhances the learning environment to meet the needs of all its students. A. Maceo Walker’s curriculum challenges the minds of all its students to develop critical, logical, high-order thinking skills to become life-long learners in an international and technical society.

6 Mission The mission of A. Maceo Walker Middle School is to equip all students with the necessary skills to master state mandated standards, to read with comprehension, to write with clarity, and to compute with accuracy while developing reasoning and problem-solving skills. Students will meet or exceed proficiency standards in their respective grade levels.

7 Philosophy Statement Children have an intrinsic desire to do well and behave appropriately; thus, it is our responsibility to provide the guidance and structure necessary for students to succeed in school. We believe every child has a right to learn in an environment free from fear, intimidation and disruptions; thus its is our responsibility to foster an educational climate where positive school wide behavior is expected and modeled daily. Students, parents, and all staff members have a pro-active responsibility to ensure students adhere to school-wide rules and procedures which maintain a safe, effective academic arena.

When a class ends, the team captain will line his or her students up in the hall along side the lockers.

After the designated teacher has his or her students lined up in the hall, team of teachers should direct the transition to the next class.

59 Intervention Strategies
For students who have been referred to the office times, A. Maceo Walker uses the following intervention strategies: group counseling (3 types) Academic- Students experiencing difficulty with academic coursework Career- Eighth grade students in preparation for high school Social- Students experiencing difficulty with social skills and/or behavioral issues. mentoring behavior plans for repeated minor infractions and over 5 days out of school suspension (using BIP and other resources) S-Team Meetings Parent Conferences/ Parental Involvement In-School Suspension Overnight Suspensions

A. Maceo Walker Middle School follows the guidelines of Shelby County Schools. Students are referred by the administration and designated faculty. Students will be monitored by the ISS teacher. Activities include class assignments from teachers, character education building activities, real-world discussions, and anger management activities.

61 Secondary Intervention (Tier 2) Evaluation
Each 20 day period, the data for Tier 2 students is analyzed. The PBIS team plays close attention to the following: Number of office referrals Observation data Data from the PowerSchool SMS system will be used to determine success rate of interventions. Conferences (Students, Teachers, Guidance Counselors, etc.) Parent, Teacher, Student Surveys

62 Tertiary Interventions (Tier 3)
Our School Support Team (S-Team) and teachers identify and plan for these students by reviewing disciplinary referrals and parent conferences. S-Team meetings, meetings with the counselors, and meetings with the teachers are conducted early to identify special student needs. We monitor these interventions with data from PowerSchool. We have 0 Functional Behavior Assessments and comprehensive Behavior Intervention Plans A. Maceo does not participate in the SHAPE Program We had 2 Threat Assessments (From last year, ) Currently, we have 17 expulsions We monitor each 20-day period the success of interventions. We look for a decreased number of disciplinary referral forms and parent contacts/meetings for Tier 3 students. We also look for an increase in attendance and academic performance for these targeted students.

64 Computation for Triangle – 1st 20 Days 2014 - 2015
Number of students with 6+ office referrals (red zone)= 1 Divide this number by total enrollment (609) for % in red zone 1 % Number of students with 2 – 5 office referrals (yellow zone)= 56 Divide this number by total enrollment for % in yellow zone 9% Number of students with 1 office referral= 84 Add together totals from 1, 2, & 3 and subtract from total enrollment to get students with 0 office referrals = 468 0–1 office referral (green zone)=add totals from 3 & 4. Divide by total enrollment for % in green zone : % Total students referred (total of first 3 lines)= 141 Divide by total enrollment body for % students referred 23%

65 Conclusion A. Maceo Walker Middle School is committed providing a positive environment that promotes appropriate student behaviors and encourages students to practice self-discipline with the support and guidance of administrators, teachers, parents, and other students.
