Murray’s Three Levels of Intervention Murray identified a School Code of Student Conduct with levels of consequences Teachers follow this process Office referrals come in at Level 3 of the 6 levels of consequences Developed a “Levels of Consequences” sheet for use to document prior interventions or consequences Student Handbook, beginning on page 13: Provided by Cyndy Bliss, AP, Murray Middle School
Roland Grise Middle School: How a Two Teacher Team is Doing It! At the beginning of the second nine weeks, the Spooner/Miller team began implementing a positive behavior support plan. Each Monday, the students began the week with 15 play dollars which represented payment for appropriate school behavior. Students were responsible for maintaining these dollars. At the end of each week, these dollars were used to purchase admission to “Fun Friday Free Time”. The cost was 10 play dollars. “Fun Friday Free Time” activities were determined with the input from students (Examples: Extra time on blacktop, kickball game, movie day, classroom games, etc.) Throughout the week, the students’ behavior was monitored and dollars were lost for violating school or classroom expectations. The expectations were posted in each classroom. Students were also given the opportunity to earn extra dollars when the teachers deemed the students’ behavior to go above and beyond normal expectations. Students who had not earned the requisite amount worked in classroom on assignments that focused on behavior modification. Roland Grise Home of the Knights
Roland Grise Here’s What They Found! The plan was shown to be very effective in diminishing poor behavior and did result in an increase of exemplary behavior. The teachers had collected behavior data to indicate which expectation was not met on a daily basis to help them determine if the intervention was effective After reviewing the data that was collected during the plan implementation, the plan was “fine-tuned” Small changes to the classroom expectations were made Most importantly they plan on focusing on reinforcing appropriate behavior in the areas where most problems occurred.
Suggestion: You could add student names at the top if you are targeting specific students & reinforcing behaviors.

A + sign before the number represents multiple violations Roland Grise Sample Data Collection Tool
Roland Grise Revised Expectations Come to class with all materials (no locker breaks) No food, gum, drinks, or candy in the classroom unless you have special permission Talk only when permitted Use only actions that are not disruptive & promote a positive learning environment. This would include appropriate language, keeping your hands to yourself, staying in your seat, etc. Follow teacher directions the first time they are given Maintain on task behavior when appropriate Any referral that results in class time missed (ISS or OSS) will result in the student forfeiting $3.00 per day.
Another School’s Example: Pass The Buck? Is this an office referral or a classroom intervention? John is chewing gum in class. This is the 10 th Time in a month. Clara is using profane Language in the hallway. Smiles is talking out In class again. Leslie has a kitchen Knife in her book bag Mac is being Disrespectful.
