(Horner & Sugai, 2004)
•The top problem behaviors this school year are: skipping, disrespect/defiance, disruption, and inappropriate language.•Tardies are not usually reported in SWIS so they are not included on this report•There has been a significant decrease in all of these areas from last school year to now.
•This graph looks at the average referrals per day per month per 100 students so that school years can be compared (because enrollment varies year to year)•The average number of referrals per month has decreased 50% this school year (2004-2005) compared to last year (2003-2004).
COMPARING YEAR ONE AND YEAR TWO•Green Zone has gone from 42% to 60% (Target 80%)•Yellow Zone has gone from 18% to 13% (Target 15%)•Red Zone has gone from 40% to 27% (Target 5%)
