    Dear parent/guardian,

    This year at OIS we will continue to use the 4BehaviorSchool Wide Behavior Plan.  The plan will serve multiple purposes including providing students with a consistent set of rules and consequences, providing teachers with a process for managing behavior, and providing the office with additional behavior data. 

    Here is how the 4Behavior School Wide Behavior Plan works:

    All teachers in the school have a laminated set of classroom expectations & interventions to hang in their rooms. 

    ·       Be respectful and courteous to classmates, teachers, school staff and the school itself.

    ·       Listen and follow directions.

    ·       Work and play safely.

    Teachers will review these expectations and interventions with students at the beginning of theyear.  Teachers will use a chart to monitor student behavior each day.  Each time a student does not follow or meet an expectation a different intervention is used.

    ·       Warning

    ·       Lunch detention

    ·       Phone call home

    ·       Discipline referral to office

    A child who is not behaving appropriately will have his/her number or name placed in the appropriate container of the chart.  Students who receive 5 lunch detentions or more or receive more serious consequences in a month will be referred to the Intervention Team team using the student referral form.  After meeting the team will share ideas and/or additional interventions teachers may use with the student.  Students may be referred for additional support. 

    The 4Behavior Plan also provides additional supports and incentives for students. 

     

    ·       BRAVE tickets can be given to students to acknowledge them for good behavior or a job well done.  Tickets can be cashed in or saved up for bigger and better things.

    ·       Class meeting lessons will be developed and will focus on THE BRAVES character education points in order to teach students positive behavior.

    ·       Once every 6 day cycle teams may use an MPP period to have a 20 minute Team incentive time. Students may participate in this time if they have been prepared for class 80% of time during the 6 days of the cycle.  This percentage will increase in each marking period. 

    If you have any questions about the 4Behavior School Wide Discipline Plan please contact me at your earliest convenience.  Thank you in advance for you support and cooperation.

    Sincerely,
