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!
