Behavior Management Plan
Behavioral Mission Statement: To establish and maintain a community of respect between students, teachers, and staff utilizing comprehensive historical data, while maintaining a safe and conducive environment.
Behavioral Management Plan Components:
A. School Expectations and Rules: Posters are displayed in classrooms and common areas to promote awareness of the four basic student expectations. The four basic expectations are:
- Safety: Students are to keep his/her hands, feet, body and objects to himself/herself
- Responsiblity: Initiating work and following through with work
- Respect: Students are to use appropriate language, be a good friend, and follow teacher’s directions
- Individual: This is an individual goal as per the student’s Individual Education Plan (IEP)
B. Positive Interventions/Rewards: Rewards are based on a level system and are dependent on the level in which the student is currently on. As a student earns consecutive days of earning his/her points, he/she is then able to move up a level and thus allowing for increased activity choices.
C. Curriculum: Teachers incorporate lessons/discussions about positive behavior and encourage students to be reflective throughout the day through the use of the level point system mentioned above.
D. Behavior Plan:
- Prevention – Prevention is always first and foremost our main priority. Every student at Oak Hill School will have an Individualized Crisis Management Plan (ICMP) upon entering the program.
- Instruction – Teaching strategies to achieve desired behavior must be taught through explicit instruction. Explicit instruction includes: modeling the desired behavior through the use of examples and non-examples, providing opportunities to practice within the context of where the behavior occurs, and monitoring progress.
- Progress Monitoring – Progress monitoring is on-going throughout the day with 15 minute intervals for reinforcement. Structured observations of the target behaviors is the method used in measuring student’s progress.
