As a member of the Ramsey Magnet School of Science community, students are expected to wear clothes that meet uniform guidelines while attending school. The daily expectation is 100% compliance. The school uniform policy was implemented to create an atmosphere which encourages learning, equality, teamwork and safety while instilling the values of respect, responsibility, and pride!
Uniform shirts consist of a plain, solid-colored, long or short-sleeved shirt or sweatshirt with the Ramsey logo on the upper left chest corner. Brand names and logos must not be visible. Shirts should be constructed so the tops of the shoulders are covered with no less than a 2 ½ inch strap (e.g. no halter tops, strapless tops, spaghetti straps, or bare shoulder tops of any type will be allowed). Students can choose any color they desire. The uniform guidelines do not prohibit students from wearing coats, jackets, sweaters, or other appropriate outer garments as needed for weather conditions. If a student desires to wear an outer garment (sweater, vest, or sweatshirt) in the building, it must have a visible logo.
Girls and Boys: All pants must be clean, free from holes, and in good condition. No pajama pants or slippers allowed. All shorts and skirts must be no shorter than mid-thigh from the bottom of the knee.Suggested Uniform Vendors:Pyramid Printing1006 N 4th Street208-664-0254Underground Expressions402 Sherman Avenue208-664-4763JIK Printshop503 N 4th Street208-651-9163Wildwood Screen Printing1333 N Biztown Loop714-794-4728Atomic Threads2195 W Dakota Ave208-772-5414

PBIS-Positive Behavior Intervention and Support
What is PBIS?
- PBIS is a process for creating safer and more effective schools.
- It is a school-wide design for discipline
- It is a preventative/proactive approach
- PBIS focuses on improving a school’s ability to teach and support positive behavior for all students.
- A data-driven program. Our team analyzes the data each month.
- It uses consistent consequences for problem behavior.
- It is a program that can be changed based on the feedback we receive.
Why do we need PBIS ?
- Teachers and students deserve to work in a positive environment.
- Students who behave well deserve to get most of the attention, not the ones who misbehave.
- Teachers deserve to teach the lesson they intended without major behavioral disruptions.
- Teachers, students, and parents deserve to know the levels of discipline in a school building.
- Teachers deserve to know what the discipline data looks like at our school and be part of the decision making process.
The 3 Major Components of PBIS
- Teaching appropriate behavior in all settings
- Interventions when behavior expectations are not met
- Recognition when behaviors are met
What does discipline look like at Ramsey? When a child fails to meet the behavior expectations of our school, one of three things can happen. Depending on the behavior, the adult can redirect or teach to the expected behavior without documenting the incident. Another option is for the adult to fill out a ‘minor form’. These forms can be used as a warning and can also include a range of consequences such as a conversation with the child, moving seats in the classroom, losing recess, and/or calling home. If a child receives 4 minor forms in a month, they are referred to one of the administrators with a ‘major form’. Certain behaviors can warrant a child being given a major form right away. Consequences for major forms are given by one of the administrators and involve a phone call home. Examples include the loss of recess(es) or suspension when necessary. Our goal for PBIS is to minimize the number of ‘major forms’ by teaching to our expectations and rewarding positive behavior throughout the building. We strive for consistency in our response to negative behavior. What positive approaches are used at Ramsey?Our team works diligently to reward positive behavior. Our primary incentives for students are rewarding "above and beyond" behavior with beaker bucks. These bucks can be used at our bi-weekly Beaker Buck Store to 'buy' prizes. From time to time, we also enjoy rewarding entire classrooms with things like extra PE or dance parties!
