School Wide Positive Behavior Intervention and Support ProgramBen Franklin School has a School Wide Positive Behavior Intervention and Support Program.We have 3Rs for school:Ready, Respectful, and Responsible.PBIS is a research-based behavior framework that focuses on acknowledging students for consistent, socially appropriate, positive behavior.
Common routines and language with respect to the school’s behavioral expectations are consistent throughout the school.
Students are rewarded for their positive, socially appropriate behavior and earn privileges and rewards.
A Minor Behavior Office Referral is a teacher-managed consequence given to a student who has committed a minor infraction, breaking one or more of the school-wide expectations..A Major Behavior Office Referral is a discipline report for more serious infractions that is handled by school administration and is included in the student's cumulative file. An appropriate consequence is given, and an administrator will contact the student’sparent/guardian.
Yellow Tickets!Teachers at Ben Franklin are always looking for students who display the 3 Rs in our school. If your student is ‘caught’ being Ready, Responsible, or Respectful, he/she can earn a yellow ticket and be eligible for a reinforcer in the classroom.
Orange tickets are available for students who exhibit behaviors that are above those expected. Students earn Orange Tickets by going out of their way to help others and being positive role models. Orange Ticket winners are part of our Principal’s 200 Club and have the opportunity to earn special rewards like field trips, t-shirts, or ice cream parties!
