Encouraging the Good
Though our school has moved away from extrinsic motivation and rewards, we do still host monthly celebrations to recognize students who have exhibited exemplary behavior and determination.
The criteria to attend these incentives is usually:
-Over 94% attendance
-No more than 3 tardies
-No F's on report card
-No suspensions (in school or out of school)
-No more than two weeks in lunch detention
The criteria is subject to change and is communicated with students ahead of time.
Students who do not qualify for an incentive are not punished and simply have regularly scheduled class or study hall.
