In high school I’m affected by the fact that my students have different classes and not all teachers at consistent. I’m also affected by sports and other extra curriculars. At my school teachers don’t run detention, so I stopped using it. My consequences had to be something felt in my classroom

like

Our school creates a behavior matrix, it lists consequences for typical behaviors in the classroom, cafeteria and yard. I like it because it keeps me consistent and equitable, even if I woke up cranky!

This is the cheat sheet. The actual behavior matrix has EVERY behavior we could think of. This one was made bigger and laminated for each classroom.

We aren’t allowed to suspend or expel students in our programs or have families come pick their children up. Honestly, it gave us an opportunity to form some systems as a team that helped us to feel safe. Here are three things that helped: 1. Develop a Crisis Plan: A team including teachers, administrators, social worker, and behavior specialist developed a written plan that aligned with our state regulations and school policies detailing what we would do in the event of extreme behavior. I think this is every bit as important as having a plan for a fire drill. All staff were trained and it helped with consistency. 2. We invested in two trainings: Non-violent Crisis Intervention (for teachers) and Conscious Discipline—a program that teaches self-regulation 3. Monthly leadership team meetings—-Included teachers, admin, social worker, school psychologist, behavior specialist, paraprofessionals, etc. Itstarted out as a few minutes tacked onto our staff meeting, eventually became its own meeting. We created expectations as a team, talked about hurdles and what worked, and made actionable steps for going forward. We also eventually involved community mental health partners, pediatricians, etc.

The inability to suspend any students in grades K-3 grade for constant misbehavior in the classroom in Stockton

That's unfortunate. Hopefully things will be different for you this school year.

I know that you’re in high school, but if you (or anyone) wants the Crisis Management Plan we developed, I’m happy to share. The one I have is geared toward elementary.

We started state testing today with my kiddos taking their FSA Writing. It is the first time I have seen them in school as they are a digital class, and such an amazing experience to see them together as they talked amongst themselves before we went to the classroom to test. You can see how much they miss being together. ❤

Has anyone had the conversation on how we get Ss and Ts ready for returning in the fall? I’m not talking about mask usage, hand washing times, physical distancing in classrooms, etc. I don’t think we can expect Ts and Ss to come back and just hop right into academics. Need sometime to process together, get some SEL, be face to face social again, etc. Just wondering if districts out there have gotten a head start on this task.
