- ROCK is the teaching/learning component of our PBIS program.
- The Rock framework addresses appropriate student behavior in different school environments.
- ROCK Rubrics are posted throughout the school to remind students of appropriate behavior in different locations.
- LCMS ROCK Review – teach these behaviors from day one and intermittently throughout the year as needed.
- The PBIS team will determine specific school behavioral needs as related to the ROCK program and formulate an action plan to target those needs.
- Rewards are based on office referrals.(school)
- Bus referrals that result in ISS or OSS will be counted against eligibility to participate in reward activities
- The reward cycle lasts for nine weeks (grading cycle)
- If a student receives a referrals he/she will be ineligible to participate and or/receive a reward for the remainder of the nine week period.
1st week - Any student not receiving a referral during the first week of the grading cycle will receive a reward (airhead, tootsie roll pop, etc. from their administrator)
4 1/2 week– Any student not receiving as office referral since the beginning of the nine week grading period will be eligible to participate in one of the following activities: free time after lunch, hat pass, iPod time during lunch.
9 week – Any student that has not received a referral for the entire nine weeks will be eligible to participate in the nine week reward activities. This reward is team driven. Activities must be cleared through the hall administrator. The PBIS committee recommends activities last a maximum of one hour. Game time, sports, or social times are examples of acceptable activities.
End of Semester – Any student that has not received an office referral for the entire semester will be eligible to participate in the semester celebration. Examples of past semester reward celebrations have included: team/teacher athletic events, general team activities, a culmination of outside blow-up course and jumping rings outside sporting activities, movies, and general team activities. End of semester activities will be guided by the PBIS Team.
- Teams will be sent a list of students that are eligible to participate in reward activities
- Students must be able to see the opportunity of reward if they are to change their behavior. For this reason, students will be given a “clean slate” at the beginning of each grading cycle. However, previous student referrals will be considered when administrators are making decisions about disciplinary outcomes.
Minor Behavior Offenses vs. Major Behavior Offenses
- MINOR OFFENSES
- Minor Offenses are behaviors that are handled in the classroom. They are managed using the TRACKING FORM. Examples of minor behaviors are listed on the handout. These can also be found in the teacher handbook. Refer to your behavior flow chart to help determine which behaviors are managed in the classroom and which are managed by your hall AP. Minor behaviors that are habitual in nature may become a disruption to classroom learning environment. Administration reserves the right to apply disciplinary action deemed appropriate.
- Tracking Forms
- Are used to manage minor behavior offenses
- Tracking forms are set up by teams. They are located on the Z drive on you computer. Go to My Computer, then to the Z Drive (example attached). Your team member can help you with this process. Billy McNeal will assist you if you have problems gaining access.
- Tracking forms are started over each grading period. Students will be given a “clean slate” for minor offenses.
- The Tracking Form is the minimum that must be used to address behavior. Additional steps and interventions may be added. These should be based on the behavioral needs of your students.
- If a student moves through the tracking form for a minor behavior issue then step six will result in a office referral.
- Do not use the tracking form as your classroom management plan.
- DO not move a student multiple steps on the tracking form in one day. If you see that a student is having “one of those days”, send them to an administrator.
- Major Offenses
- Major offenses are handled by your Hall AP
- Examples of major behaviors are listed on the handout. These can also be found in your teacher handbook.
- Note: Some behaviors are listed as both minor and major. The severity of the behavior must be determined before deciding whether it is a minor or major offense.
