29 Monitoring ProcessEarly intervention begins the first week of school. Teachers are regularly surveyed to find out which students are causing discipline problems. Students are monitored and referred to the appropriate team members when necessary.On the week after the latest discipline information is available from the Blue Ribbon webpage, our team meets to examine the latest data provided. We compare this data to our goals, and implement strategies and procedures to help our students who are having problems.
30 Action StepsThe Student Behavior Committee will determine the specific needs for staff development based on behavioral data analysis.Professional development meetings will be held once monthly to discuss behavioral data and management techniques.

33 Intervention PlanOur secondary interventions for students who have been referred to the office a number of times include social skills groups with social worker/school counselor and also individualized behavior plan developed by the S-Team.
34 In-School Suspension Plan ISS is one consequence in our system of progressive levels of consequences.Students complete individual assignments, reflects on their behavior choice that caused their ISS placement, discuss, write, then practice, positive behavior choices.The program will service students in grades K-8
35 Secondary Intervention Evaluation We will monitor the progress of our secondary interventions by checking in with teachers to see if the student has shown improvement in behavior. We will also follow-up by checking with office personal to see has office referrals decreased or if need to look more interventions.
36 Tertiary Interventions Intensive individual support is required on occasion where students are chronically behaving inappropriately. When positive behavior support is not working with these students other methods of intervention may be required.S-Team meetings, District support, and School Psychologist intervention are utilized in these cases.Our Blue Ribbon Committee examines the data closely for specific occurrences or student behavior patterns warranting exceptional interventions.
37 Behavior Clubs Platinum Club – E and S Gold Club – S Silver Club – 1 N The Blue Ribbon Committee has established behavior clubs to promote positive behavior. Below are the credentials for each club membership. Review and revise every 3 weeks.Platinum Club – E and SGold Club – SSilver Club – 1 NBronze Club – N’s and U’s
38 CelebrationSchool-wide and teacher academic achievements are celebrated throughout the year.Individual students, homerooms, grade-levels, and the entire school enjoy celebrations for achieving fight-free benchmarks and attendance goals.Rewards are given when homerooms achieve cafeteria benchmarks.Faculty & student birthdays are announced and recognized daily.
39 ConclusionThe Douglass’ Family sees the development of our school-wide behavior plan as an ongoing project. Our vision is that our school will consistently demonstrate and model the district’s goal to “achieve a safe, orderly environment where students, staff members, and families share high expectations for academic achievement and personal behavior.”
