• Behavior Management Beliefs

    • Expected behaviors need to be taught using clear and specific language.  A common language will be developed by staff to ensure consistent language/vocabulary is used across all school environments. 

    • Positive adult language is conveyed through word choice and tone 

    • Reinforcing language is used when students demonstrate expected behaviors. 

    • Reminding or redirecting language is used before or when a student might be forgetting expected behaviors. 

    • Reteaching language is used when student behaviors are unexpected. 

    • Consistent and relevant consequences are known across school environments.  These consequences are designed to change the unexpected behavior through reflection or action. 

    • For students who demonstrate patterns of unexpected behaviors we will discover the why, and provide appropriate, individualized behavior plans.
