What Do We Know About Effective Behavioral Expectations? They create a culture of consistency They include all students for teaching They use positive stated expectations They target all form of behavior (safe, respectful, responsible) They are known by all students and adults (ask them!)
Establishing Expectations Set 3-5 umbrella building expectations Simple and straightforward do not make them so attorneys need to interpret them! Observable & measurable Positively stated Make a list of common areas in your school Focus on important behaviors Define the expectations and complete the matrix for each setting Dont make rules you arent prepared to consistently reinforce!
Positive school behavioral expectations have the following features: Expectations are positively stated Expectations are posted: in hallways, classrooms, in the school handbook, on agenda planners, etc. Expectations are taught directly to students with formal lessons Expectations are taught and reviewed at least 10-20 times per year To maximize effectiveness, a system of positive reinforcement and recognition-all times, by all adults- for following the expectations is in place throughout the building
Some of you may be wondering Does this really work? Researchers have demonstrated that these types of programs, when paired with monitoring and a system of positive reinforcement, can reduce problem behavior and improve school climate. (Sprague et al., 2001 Taylor-Green et al.,1997)
Focus Activity- Finalize Expectations Work with your school leadership team for 15 minutes to accomplish the following: Finalize Schoolwide expectations and operationalize each expectation across the five common areas (create rules to support expectations) Divide work among team members Be prepared to report out Each team must finish the grid!
