What’s New at North Middle School?

Michigan ‘s Integrated Behavior and Learning Support Initiative

MiBLSi


Slide3 l.jpg

Why is it so important to focus on teaching positive social behaviors?

In the past, school-wide discipline has focused mainly on reacting to specific student misbehavior by implementing punishment-based strategies including reprimands, loss of privileges, office referrals, suspensions, and expulsions, North Middle School – like many other schools, was no exception.

What the Research Shows: behaviors?

Research has shown that the implementation of punishment, in the absence of other positive strategies, is ineffective.

Introducing, modeling, and reinforcing positive social behavior is an important aspect of every student’s educational experience.

Teaching and Learning Extends Beyond Academics with Middle Level Learners

Teaching behavioral expectations and rewarding students for following them is a much more positive approach than waiting for misbehavior to occur before responding.

The purpose of school-wide PBS is to establish a climate in which appropriate behavior is the norm.

What is the “Advisory Period”? Level Learners6th hour every day, groups of approximately 20 students meet together with a teacher to promote Respect, Responsibility and Positive Relationships OR “The Jr. Huskie Way!”

Lesson Plans are provided to each teacher in order to provide a consistent positive lesson for students.


Slide7 l.jpg

Will my child always have an Advisory Period? Level Learners

Students will be assigned to an Advisory Period for the whole school year. However, behavior is only one component of the MiBLSi initiative, so the behavior lessons will continue throughout the 1st 9 weeks.

As the year progresses, we will continue to phase in academic strategies, highlight employability skills, practice communication skills, all in an effort to support the academic, social and emotional growth of each child at North Middle School. Middle school is focused on the development of the “whole child.”
