Norms and Protocols
Please remember the following




during our time together:
1. Tech responsible
2. Positive Mental Attitude
3. Solution Centered
4. Active Listening Skills
5. Student Centered

Why Are We Here?
There are 5 whys as to the reason AMS is moving forward and owning our changes



PBIS Handbook:
The beads that you received upon entering will be used for the game.

The person with the most beads at the end of the meeting will win an amazing prize.
When you hear the following words stated from your colleagues, please respectfully ask for their beads.
1. Punch
2. Grounded
3. Stanton
4. State Street
5. We used to...
1. Heart:
We care about AMS
We care about kids
We care about each other
Do what is best for AMS
Will bring us together and ensure consistency
2. State
PBIS is now a National initiative for all schools

PBIS is what is best for kids

We have been proactive

Original documents for Pittsburgh Plan state positive supports. Back to basics!
3. Your Child:
We would want what is best for our child.
4. Real-World Example
One of our students loves the behavior card. This student loved the incentives and positive outcomes, but...
This student had several needs and attendance issues because of the anxiety of coming to school.

This student never made it to Ace status, cried at home, and wouldn't come to school.

He struggles with anxiety, organization, and is OCD. With the changes to the behavior card, we will now be able to provide the support this child needs.
5. Rewards for: Child, Staff, Building, and Community:
Changing minds and making a difference lie within the reach of any individual who is open minded. Rewards assist with changing minds. Rewards for one course of behavior and thought rather than another is powerful. Rewarding the positives instead of reacting to the negatives is a mind change for staff and students.

Discipline Data 2012-2013

We will be able to merge Stanton and State Street Behavior Card systems

We will be able to close the gap by linking the card to student achievement

We have reviewed data and discipline and renewed/updated Card system to fit current needs.

We will be able to have a building-wide consistent behavior system

"Kids do not fail, plans fail"

PBIS has 3 Tiers:
Tier I:
Universal for all students
80% of the student population.

“ALL” students receive in the form of instruction (academic and behavior / social-­­emotional) and student supports.

Reminders on card GAT/Days of character Grade-level assemblies Matrices Weekly incentives

Our Tier I is the Behavior Card

Tier II
10%-15% of the student population

What “some” students receive in addition to Tier 1 supports.

Tier II supports currently at AMS:

Take 5 Cool Down Area RTI CICO BIP C/A Consultation Lunch Groups Grade Level Teaming Changing of Schedule Changing School Times iCARE Team Referral Erik's Room ZAP (proposed) 99 Squadron
Peer Advisory Groups Excel
Aviator time (proposal)
Social Skills Class
Tier III
Tier III: 2%-5% of student population

What “few” students receive and is the most intense service level a school can provide to a student.

Interventions are individualized for students with serious or chronic behavior problems.

What Tier III supports do we have?

2 Scenarios do take place for teachers:

Scenario 1.
A teacher has tried 4:1 approach, eye contact, proximity, whole class redirection, verbal individual, cool-off period, and a conference in hallway.

The teacher just can't teach because student takes away instructional time.

What do you do?
Scenario 2:
Situation escalates so fast that teacher needs assistance.
Call the office for support. Send student to office!
Teachers use their tools in their toolbox.

Most of the time teachers can control behavior.

There are times when behavior is uncontrollable

We are here to support you!
No confusion:

We do not want chaos in the building

If you cannot control a situation = office
