monitoring process
Monitoring Process

The Blue Ribbon Website is a vital tool in helping to disaggregate student data. The SART team looks at student attendance and categories students absences based on highest to lowest. The team follows the 10-step process set-up by Pupil Services.

The Blue Ribbon Team looks at the number of disciplinary referrals based on grade level, students, and teacher. Administration meets with teachers with a high number of disciplinary referrals to talk about intervention strategies that need to be implemented.

Attendance charts are posted in the office each nine weeks. Each classroom has the “Fox Report” – the percentage of students present for the day, number of referrals to the office, and percentage scores on Reading and Math.

action steps

  • List steps you have chosen to prioritize for the 2009-10 school year based on the Effective Behavior Survey (EBS) and the Team Implementation Checklist
  • Complete Action Plan

Based on the findings from the 2008 -2009 EBS we feel that disruptive behavior or continued misconduct and immoral disreputable conduct are 2 areas that we must provide intervention strategies by:

1. Reinforcement of rules

2. Parental contact

3. Guidance counselor/sessions

4. Social worker – sessions provided based on need

5. Outside services and resources.

in school suspension plan1
In-School Suspension Plan

Fox Meadows Elementary School has an in-school suspension (ISS) room in the Media Center. Teachers refer students to the office and depending on the severity of the offense, students spend from 1 hour to 1 day in ISS. Students bring their class work with them and assignments must be completed. The amount of class work given is based on the time spent. The ISS teacher monitors students. The problems are solved through discussion, scheduled sessions with the social worker, guidance counselor, or psychologist upon parent approval and permission. A follow-up is done with the student and possible S-team if applicable.

secondary intervention evaluation
Secondary InterventionEvaluation
  • To evaluate the progress of students using secondary intervention we will use the following: (1) Teacher input and feedback, (2) School-Wide Disciplinary Information, (3) Social Worker and Guidance Counselor Evaluations, and (4) Parent feedback and input.
  • Indicators of student progress include improvement in student behavior based on report card, progress report, visible behavior, and data collected from intervention stakeholders.
tertiary interventions
Tertiary Interventions
  • How your School Support Team identify and plan for these students

Students are identified based on the number of referrals, teacher/parent/administration recommendations, and observation

  • Number of Functional Behavior Assessments and Comprehensive Behavior Intervention Plans

10% of the student body

  • How you monitor success of intervention

Classroom and other settings; observations

  • Your results so far toward your school wide goals
  • List graphs and short explanations.
  • You will have data from REA so you can compare last year’s numbers with the previous year’s

The first six weeks of school was a change in the school culture. There was an increase in the number of referrals, however, referrals are declining due to an emphasis placed on school and classroom rules, character education, and increased communication with parents.
