3 Budd Churchward  Attended Western Washington University  Lives in Blirch Bay, WA  Elementary school teacher for 12 years  Middle school teacher for 18 years  Actively involved with implementing the “Honor Level System” in schools across the United States.

4 Churchward’s Philosophy  Students perform better on different levels of discipline.  Schools should not discipline all students the same way.  Schools should differentiate discipline like they differentiate lesson plans.

5 Information about The Honor Level System  Designed to meet the needs of a school in Washington  Today it is used by elementary, middle and high schools across America.  “The Honor Level System has been described as “one of the most refreshing, proactive” approaches to dealing with student discipline to ever come to our schools. It is a perfect blend of Assertive and Empathetic discipline that shows respect for the child.”

6 The Honor Level System  Honor Level 1  Students seldom have difficulty behaving or making good choices.  14 days with No Time-Outs or Detention, including buses or school events.  70% - 80% of students will be eligible.

7  Honor Level 2  1-2 behavior issues in the last 14 days, which may have resulted in a Time-Out or Detention.  20% - 30% of students will be eligible.

8  Honor Level 3  Students that struggle with good behavior choices and often get into trouble.  3-4 behavior issues in the last 14 days, which may have resulted in Time-Outs or Detention.  5% or fewer students will be eligible.

9  Honor Level 4  Students often make poor behavior choices and get into constant trouble.  Several Time-Outs or Detentions in the last 14 days.  Rarely more than 5% of students. Usually less than 5% of students.

10 The 14 Day Period  Only the past series of 14 days are considered when examining a student’s discipline record.  Each student begins each day on level one.  Regardless of what a student does to move from level one to any other level, the student always has opportunities to gain his or her way back to level one.  After the 14 day period, all students’ discipline records are cleared. The students begin the next 14 day period with zero infractions.

11 Positive Reinforcements  Privileges are for students on level 1 or level 2 at the end of the designated 14 day period.  Level 1:  Extended lunchtime breaks  Additional recreation activities during designated periods  Spontaneous activities:  Ice cream certificates  Certificates from restaurants for free items  Level 2:  Some activities from level 1 will be available for level 2.  Level 3:  Excluded from extra privileges  Often excluded from activities, but may negotiate the right to participate  Level 4:  Ineligible to participate in any privileges or activities, including afterschool dances and sports  May not negotiate for the right to participate

12 Stages of Consequences  Consequences are progressively more severe, as the student advances to the next stage of discipline with each infraction.  Up to seven stages of consequences may be used.  An example of the stages of consequences are as follows:  1st infraction: 15 minute Lunch Detention  2nd infraction: 30 minute Lunch Detention  3rd infraction: After School Detention  4th infraction: In-school Suspension  5th infraction: Saturday School  6th infraction: Suspension from School

13  “Psychologists tell us, though, the best behavior modification systems include both positive recognition and appropriate consequences. Furthermore, such a discipline system must be perceived as fair and equitable as possible.”  Churchward encourages teachers to be consistent when administering the Honor Level System.  Talk to the students to try and figure out what may be troubling the student.  Encourage students to make improvements and move toward level one.

14 Pros of the Honor Level System  14 Day Tracking Period  Students begin each day on level one.  Students can earn higher level status after behavior infractions.  Positive Reinforcements

15 Cons of the Honor Level System  Students receive consequences for each infraction, as well as moving down to a different level of the honor system, where they also lose afterschool privileges, such as football games or school dances.
