“If you improve a teacher's self-esteem, confidence, communication skills or stress levels, you improve that teacher's overall effectiveness across the curriculum. “– Elaine MacDonald
Do you need a behavior change? Survey the administration, staff and students. • Assess the existing behavior within the building by making a triangle for your school, both academically and behaviorally. • Will you have staff “buy in”

Make an Outline Utilizing the BOQ’s is a great way to keep on track throughout the process.
Create Effective Teams: Make a “Who’s Who” in your school: ESD team Social workers Special Education Team Guidance Counselors School Psychologist Teachers with known “good” behavior classrooms
Teaming Structure: Is everyone familiar with the BOQ’s? Is there a continuous fidelity check? How do you hold people accountable for processes?
Develop a “School-wide” agreement or definitive behavior statement (Mission).
List of Expected Behaviors Minor infractions: Major infractions: Have teams work together to decide what behaviors should be classroom managed vs. administration managed
Communication: • Parents • Back to school night, brochures, parent handbook • Publish information on the website • Staff • Monthly meetings, precise agendas for meetings, staff handbook • Conduct staff development sessions to familiarize all parties with the program • Students • Matrixes visible and taught • Area paws charts • Demonstrating correct behaviors • Assemblies (recurring)
"Efficiency is doing things right; effectiveness is doing the right things" - Peter F. Drucker
Stick to your policies • “Fair is not always equal” • Create a reward system (intrinsic/extrinsic/low cost • Develop a “tracking system” for the rewards • Create a reward committee for students and staff • Create lesson plans or use existing ones • Create or use a developed system to track all school behavior to be able to compare data
Bad Breaks: • Sometimes you just have a student or combination of students that do not respond to the “typical” redirection in the day to day teaching of student expected behaviors. • Use other schools suggestions for classroom implementation lessons as well as create your school’s own videos or pledge to involve the staff and students in the process.
