1. SWPBS is the topic we have discussed in depth this semester, is this a good example of this?

2. What makes this an effective tool for younger students and encouraging positive behaviour within a classroom?

Seven Things to Remember About Students Who Challenge Us | InService Blog

Seven Things to Remember About Students Who Challenge Us | InService Blog | Positive Behavior Intervention & Supports:  Oakland County | Scoop.it

Seven Important components to consider if you find youself challenged by the behavior of a student.  The first component deals with having a schoolwide system in place that is consistently implemented. 

 

 Typically there are school-wide expectations that are defined in common areas by whole staff/kids (What does safe look like in the cafeteria? Hallway? Bus?) Teachers SHOULD then have autonomy to  tailor what the expectations look like in their classroom .  Students can help define!  Here is a tool to assist:  https://www.dropbox.com/s/jomr366nezu11rs/Beechview%20CHAMPS.doc ;

 

Teachers, students and administration should know which kinds of behaviors are handled in class by the teacher and which ones are handled by administration.  This is the part that needs consistency.  Here is an example of a way to create a consistent system: 

https://www.dropbox.com/s/i0epblvwawc5i2x/GeneralProcedureFlowChart_v2.1.pdf ; The details can change.  The important part is that everyone is consistent.  Many teachers become frustrated when the system is unclear and inconsistently implemented.  Kids find the holes and it becomes a game.  They know who and where they can and cannot "get away" with pushing the limits.  Not fair to them!

 

A common misconception here is that the consequences administration chooses for infractions must always be the same.  Not so!  There is room for individualization!  The important part is that the system is followed.  Consequences are only a small part!  It matters most that the system is implemented and less about which "hammer" you use. 

 

Another misconception is that all teachers must respond a certain way (consequences again!) to each behavior.  Not so!  They just need to know what they are expected to handle and when to make an office referral! 

 

The hammer you use is less important than using it consistently.

Four Year Plan to Build a Sustainable PLE for RTT-D | Personalize Learning

Four Year Plan to Build a Sustainable PLE for RTT-D | Personalize Learning | Positive Behavior Intervention & Supports:  Oakland County | Scoop.it

The RTT-D competition allows for building a sustainable Personalized Learning System over a four year period. We know it takes at least four years to make real change. Personalizing learning can incorporate many of your existing initiatives or a redesign of a combination of what you are doing. In some cases, it will be a complete redesign.

 

This takes a process, a common language that everyone understands, a shared vision that involves all stakeholders, and an action plan detailing the steps to transform teaching and learning. We designed a four year plan that supports teaching and leading in the application. We work closely with your leadership team to integrate our services across the four year plan.

 

If all stakeholders in the community create a sustainable shared vision of personalized learning that encourages creativity and engagement with learners who take responsibility for their learning, then the implementation of the vision and plan over a four year period will work for every learner so they are college- and career-ready.

 

Let us support you in building a sustainable Personalized Learning Environment (PLE)!

Teachers: Frustrations over student discipline widespread - Macon Telegraph (blog)

Teachers: Frustrations over student discipline widespread - Macon Telegraph (blog) | Positive Behavior Intervention & Supports:  Oakland County | Scoop.it

The findings indicated that school employees repeatedly saw principals pressured to avoid suspending or expelling students for even criminal violations such as assault or knife possession. Staff members also told consultants they were pressured not to report discipline violations.

 

Perfect storm :  school needs to look carefully at their system of support; analyze data about disciplinary actions and put preventative supports in place for staff and kids.  www.pbis.org 

 

And it is possible that economic segregations is also at work.  Bigger problem, yes.  Systemic renewal is the best alternative until poverty is fixed.

When does my school need to look at policies and procedures? When 20% of kids have 2 or more referrrals.

When does my school need to look at policies and procedures? When 20% of kids have 2 or more referrrals. | Positive Behavior Intervention & Supports:  Oakland County | Scoop.it

Schools looking to improve the culture/climate of their school use data to help them make decisions. Most often, the data comes from discipline referrals that inform us about the environments we have created. Office discipline referrals are a symptom of underlying issues. These issues are related to the students themselves, of course. However, the school is a highly social context within which learning is to occur. It is important to also evaluate instruction, curriculum and the environment along with the learner while trying to understand issues around “behavior”.

 

When do schools need to focus analysis on school-wide policies and procedures: when more than 20% of their enrollment has more than 2 office discipline referrals.

 

Here is a document from the Michigan Integrated Behavior and Learning Support Initiative (MiBLSI) to assist buildings with school wide interventions related to behavior. https://www.dropbox.com/s/xqd1obr236qq48i/3.4%20Beh_data_core_SWIS%20042309.doc

Parent Engagement: A Paradigm Shift

We know that learning is dependent on an interconnected system of relationships and support. Yet despite extensive research, we are failing to create healthy partnerships between parents, teachers, and students that encourage learning and innovation. To understand how parent engagement must change, a quick history lesson is helpful."
